Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan admits he is still to make a decision over whether to extend his stay at the club.

The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season and is yet to commit to a new deal.

Gundogan said: “There is no decision yet, otherwise I would have signed. I would say we are still in talks but I don’t feel there is much pressure.

“We are still competing in all competitions and want to win every competition we are competing for.”

Gundogan is a valued member of the City squad although he has never been an automatic starter under manager Pep Guardiola.

He said: “I’m always open-minded for challenges, everyone has to make his own decision. At the moment I try to play as well as possible and at the end of the season we are going to talk again.”

Gundogan was speaking at a press conference to preview City’s Champions League clash with Schalke at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday. City lead the last-16 tie 3-2 after the first leg.

Gundogan said: “We shouldn’t feel too comfortable after the result at Schalke. It was a huge result, it makes you feel happy, but there is still a game to play and Schalke just have to score two goals. We have to go for the win.”
