PARIS (AP) -- Midfielder Blaise Matuidi has signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2018, ending months of speculation surrounding his future.

The 26-year-old Matuidi has been one of PSG's key players, playing an important role as PSG won the French league title last year. The France international was out of contract in June and had been linked with a big-money move to English Premier League side Manchester City.

Matuidi has formed a dynamic central midfield pairing with Thiago Motta, who recently signed a new deal to keep him at the club until 2016. PSG is also negotiating terms with Brazil center half Alex over a new contract.

A tireless runner renowned for his tenacious tackling, Matuidi has played 124 games and scored 13 goals for PSG since joining from Saint-Etienne in 2011.
