Yaya Toure has vowed to remain at Manchester City as he asked for an end to a summer of speculation largely begun by his own agent.
Toure and his representative, Dimitri Seluk, spoke yesterday to confirm the Ivory Coast international’s intention to honour his contract — which runs until 2017 — at the Etihad Stadium.
“The fans have always been good to me, they’ve always been good to my family,” Toure said. “I want to stay. I will always honour my contract. I don’t think about all this speculation. It’s a big pleasure to stay and enjoy the next season.”
Seluk, who spoke before Toure, had said: “I would like to say Yaya will stay at City. He won’t go to any club. Everybody can stop speculation about this.
“Yaya will stay at Manchester City 100%. ”
