Cape Town - David Silva has reiterated his intention to leave Manchester City in 2020, with a desire to play for hometown club Las Palmas before he retires.

The former Spain international has become a firm fan favourite at the Etihad Stadium in the eight years since he was signed from Valencia in 2010.

Silva has won nine trophies with City, including three Premier League titles, but doesn't see himself staying beyond his current contract which has two years left to run.

The play-maker, who turns 33 in January, never had the chance to feature for the Canary Islands outfit after joining Los Che at the age of 14 and progressing through their youth ranks.

When asked how long he still intends to play for, having retired from international football last month, Silva told the BBC: "For City, two more seasons - what's left on my contract.

"After that, I don't know. It depends how I feel physically and mentally.

"I've always said that I'd like to play for Las Palmas - my local team. But we'll see how things go in two years and take it all from there."
