The agent of Thiago Silva says the AC Milan defender is delighted with his new contract.

Milan announced the agreement yesterday.

Paulo Tonietto told TMW: "Thiago has renewed his contract with Milan until 2017. The agreement was found ten days ago and we are very happy at Milan.

"(Adriano) Galliani has always been clear with us: he has refused the transfer to Paris Saint-Germain and said the contract would be appropriate.

"Milan have recognized the value of the strongest defender in the world. Thiago believes strongly in Milan."
