The 32-year-old signed a five-year deal when he arrived from Aston Villa in 2009 and wants to extend his stay at the Etihad Stadium beyond summer 2014.

Quoted in several national newspapers, Barry said: "I am happy here and very settled. I spent 12 years at Villa and I've spent four years at City and I'm not really one for moving around. I'd like to stay as long as possible."

He added: "For a player to feel settled and feel very comfortable, you generally want to be playing regular football - and I've been lucky enough to feature in a lot of games this season.

"That's one reason why I am happy to stay."

He went on to say: "I am sure decisions will be made over the summer."
