I want to finish my playing career at Man City - Yaya Toure

I want to finish my playing career at Man City - Yaya Toure

"I just want to say thank you to the fans and to everyone - to the owners, the board and everyone at this football club". To be honest, to see me in another shirt would be quite hard but we'll see.

French defenders Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna are expected to follow Pablo Zabaleta out of the door and goalkeeper Willy Caballero also wants to know where he stands. I am happy and I enjoy playing in the Premier League.

"For me, it's not about the money or other things, it's about the fans and (hopefully) for them I can stay, but we'll see". "I always feel close to you".

The midfielder joined City in 2010 for a fee of around £24 million from Barcelona and is keen for a quick resolution to his future but Man City will not go into talks until after Sunday's Premier League finale away at Watford. You can always go somewhere else but where the fans care about you is the most important thing. "I know that I can even improve, even when I don't play, so I'm not anxious, but less injuries and I'll be happy next season".

The former Ivory Coast global added: "We tried to win something this year but it was hard".

"We have offered our full support throughout the night and this morning to the leaders of the City of Manchester itself and to the Emergency Services who are doing so much to support our city in these most challenging of circumstances". That would be the best way for me. It's my first year here but when I saw what I saw tonight I see what an impact he has had for this club.

"I want to be honest with the fans because those guys have been so special and the club has been good to me."
