Yaya Toure signs new City deal

Manchester City have been boosted by the news that Yaya Toure has signed a new four-year deal at the club.

The Sun reported in March that Toure was considering leaving City this summer and that if a new agreement was not decided in the coming days then he would walk out.

However, after a period of consideration, the Ivorian has committed his services to the current champions on a deal reportedly worth £220,000-a-week.

"This is where I want to be," he said on the club's official website. "When I first arrived at City every time I went to sleep I would dream about us winning something; now it is about us being the best team in whatever competition we take part in.

"I will never forget how I have been treated here by the fans, the club and the owners and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player.

"I want to continue winning titles and trophies and continue to make history. I have enjoyed all of my time here and can’t wait for the next chapter. This is an incredible club to be part of with fans that support a team to the end whatever the circumstances."

Toure, 29, has been a pivotal figure as City claimed the FA Cup and then the Premier League title in successive seasons.

The powerful midfielder joined the club in July 2010 for around £24 million and recent reports suggested that Chelsea were ready to test City’s resolve with a summer bid.
