Yaya Toure Signs New Contract at Manchester City to Keep Him At Club Until 2017

Yaya Toure has signed a new contract at Manchester City to keep him at the club until 2017.

The new contract is worth approximately £11 million a year according to The SunThe new deal was signed today after his agent warned a fortnight ago that Toure would leave Manchester City if no agreement was reached.

“I want to continue winning titles and trophies and continue to make history,” Toure told the Manchester City official website. “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.”

The signing of Toure to a new four-year contract is a massive coup for City who value the Ivory Coast midfielder as a key part of their team.

Toure, 29, will next be in action for Manchester City in the derby that will be shown live on ESPN this Monday for viewers in the United States.

    Now bring back Francois!!!! (aka Kolo)

    Seriously, he has played tremendously well at CB deputising VK generally. Has had several MoTM-caliber performances since coming back from the ACoN.

    I would totally rather keep him than Lescott as second choice behind VK or Nasty.

    The Sun also reported that there is a stipulation in Yaya’s contract that City have to keep Kolo until at least 2016 and bring up their younger brother Boo Boo for a six-month trial with the reserve squad.

    This can’t be true he off in may surely? Along with Aguero, silva, Tevez, Nasri, lescott and now even Kompany and Mancini. Any body would think with these attempted unsettling stories that City had a game coming up against the the media darlings!

      I can only give that one thumbs up? I’d give it ten if I could.

    He reminds me of the “Magic Johnson” of European football. Deceptively quick, excellent skill.
