His deal expires at the end of the season, but the defender is unconcerned about his future

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany insists he remains "relaxed" despite some uncertainty over his future.

Kompany, 32, is out of contract at the end of the season and is dealing with yet another injury setback at City.

The centre-back has been at City since 2008 and has made 347 appearances for the club since joining from German side Hamburg.

Kompany said he had no concerns over his contract as Pep Guardiola's men remain in contention for four more trophies this season.

"I am in a privileged position, I have such a good relationship with the club. We're in this as partners," Kompany said, via Sky Sports.

"Nobody is making any hasty decisions. We have fixtures and fixtures and fixtures coming up – four trophies still to play for – and a contract that still exists.

"That is the key thing. There is no need to look too far beyond. Everybody is relaxed."

City can return to the top of the Premier League with a win over Everton on Wednesday after Liverpool dropped points in Monday's draw with West Ham.

"Every season has been special at City but at this point in time, we are that much with our noses into what's been happening day-in, day-out, we forget how much of a special season this could be," he added.

"I want to play my role in making sure everyone realises that and does the right thing. There is still so much to look forward to."
