Yaya Toure insists he wants to stay at Manchesster City for as long as possible.

The Ivory Coast international’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks after he suggested that he feels undervalued at Etihad Stadium following the club’s failure to acknowledge his birthday.

For me I was always quiet and my decision, if you want to say it like that, is that I will stay at Manchester City for as long as possible

The 31-year-old, who scored 20 goals and made nine assists to help City win the Premier League last season, has been touted as a target for big-spending Paris Saint-Germain and most recently Manchester United.

However, Toure, who was named on the PFA team of the year last season, has ended his silence by committing to the Citizens for the foreseeable future.

“It was not a case of leaving the club. It was difficult because my situation was quite difficult,” Toure told City’s website.

“For me I was always quiet and my decision, if you want to say it like that, is that I will stay at Manchester City for as long as possible.”

Toure has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and League Cup since moving to City from Barcelona in 2010.
