Kolarov signed a three-year contract extension with Manchester City on Thursday, the club's official web site reports.

There was talk that Kolarov was looking to move to Serie A, but his three-year contract keeps him in England on a deep Man City squad. He led all Premier League defenders in assists last season, and if he can garner more consistent playing time, he could be a must-own option next season.

Aleksander Kolarov: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov picked up an assist in Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Kolarov continues to move in-and-out of the City starting XI, which makes him a fairly unreliable fantasy option. He has shown an ability to produce when he plays, including a league-leading seven assists from the defender position, but he just doesn't play enough.

Roma, along with a handful of other teams, has targeted Kolarov, as the defender says he wants to play more frequently, reports the Daily Mail.

Kolarov revealed that he almost left Manchester to return to Italy last season after enduring a lot of time on the bench under manager Roberto Mancini, and now looks even more likely to find an exit this summer.

Kolarov assisted on Edin Dzeko's eighth minute goal during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Kolarov now has a goal and an assist in his last two league appearances, as he's getting closer to solidifying his spot in the starting XI. He was very active in the first half, and seems to move forward more than many other City defenders, which should certainly put him in a position for more assists in the future.

Kolarov scored in the 66th minute of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Swansea City on Wednesday.

Kolarov went untouched up the left sideline before centering himself and blasting a shot into the back of the net. It's almost as if all the Swansea defenders were assuming he'd pass, which gave him the perfect opportunity to score. The defender now has a goal in three different competitions for City this season.

Kolarov set up Sergio Aguero for his 10th minute goal Saturday against Southampton.

Kolarov has recorded an assist in back-to-back matches, making up for his side's inability to record a clean sheet over that span.

Kolarov assisted on Yaya Toure's 24th minute goal of Wednesday's 3-2 win over West Brom.

The assist was Kolarov's second of the season. While he's a decent fantasy option because of his clean sheet chances, Pablo Zabaleta is likely the best City fantasy piece.

Kolarov was subbed off for Gael Clichy in the 58th minute after suffering a cut on his forehead, ESPN FC reports.

Kolarov's time on the pitch has been a bit inconsistent this season but he was just starting to get more time before suffering the injury. It doesn't seem like anything serious and he will likely be okay after the international break.
