Yaya Toure has dismissed reports linking the Manchester City midfielder with a summer transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ivorian’s future has been up in the air since his agent Dimitri Seluk claimed that the midfielder would seek an exit from the club if he is not offered a new contract.

The 29-year-old’s current contract with the Citizens expires in 2015 and PSG have been touted as a possible destination for him should he fail to agree terms on a new deal.

But the former Barcelona player insists that the link to the Ligue 1 club is nothing more than media speculation.

“No, I don’t think of PSG. You know that with approach of the transfer window, there are many things that are said in the newspapers,” Toure told Sport-Ivoire.

“We are professional and so far I have not given any agreement with any club. I am for the moment a City player and I will fight so that we finished the season in good conditions.”

Toure, who has made 29 appearances and scored six goals for City this season, is believed to earn £250,000 a week at the defending Premier League champions.
