Toure 'to consider options'


Yaya Toure will not leave Manchester City during the January transfer window, but will "consider his options" in the summer.

The Ivorian has been linked with a move to Chinese side Shanghai SIPG or a reunion with former City boss Roberto Mancini at Inter Milan, but Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk says he will examine his options at the end of the season.

Toure, 32, has 17 months remaining on the £200,000-a-week deal he signed in April 2013,

"He will not move in January," Seluk told Italian TV channel SportItalia.

"However, in the summer things can change. We are ready to listen to any offers that are on the table."

In other news, Toure’s City and Ivory Coast team-mate Wilfried Bony has played down speculation that he he is unhappy with manager Manuel Pellegrini and wants to rejoin his former club Swansea.

The 27-year-old publicly questioned Pellegrini in December after he was left out of the starting line-up for the Premier League match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Bony joined City from Swansea in January 2015 in a £28m transfer, signing a four-and-a-half year deal at the Etihad Stadium.

"I’m happy at the club, all this speculation is not true," he told BBC World Football.

"I have a contract so I’m happy and I think I’m at one of the top clubs in the United Kingdom.

"I have no regrets about joining Man City. We play in the Champions League and we’re one of the top clubs in the world. I’m happy here and I can just say I’m blessed."
