MANCHESTER CITY'S Danny Tiatto has become the latest player to commit his future to the club even if they are relegated back down to Division One.
The Australian international has been one of the few plus points for City this season with his energetic performances down the left wing, and he has now vowed to stay at Maine Road even if they fail to avoid the drop.
"I intend to stay until my contract is up," said Tiatto. "There are three years still to run and I see no reason to look elsewhere.
"Every player wants to play at the highest level, we have a great bunch of players here, I am enjoying myself at City, I am playing regularly and this is where I want to stay at the moment.
The 27-year-old has joined Jeff Whitley and keeper Nicky Weaver in pledging to stay with Joe Royle's side, and he believes that even if City are relegated they can bounce straight back.
"Even if the worst comes to the worst, we have the calibre of players to get us straight back up next season, if we do go down.
"It is not something we have talked about, but you know from the mentality of the players and the fact that this is a very good club to be at, that we can bounce back. Everyone gets on well here, we just have to work on the football side of things."
