Yaya poised to commit to new City deal
Manchester City look set to get a boost as a report in the Sun claims that Yaya Toure has agreed to sign a new four-year deal at the club.
The paper carried the news that Toure was considering leaving City this summer and that if a new agreement was not decided in the coming days then he would walk out.
However, after a period of consideration, the Ivorian appears to have made up his mind and will commit his services to the current champions on a deal worth £220,000-a-week.
Toure, 29, has been a pivotal figure as City claimed the FA Cup and the Premier League title in successive seasons.
The powerful midfielder joined the club in July 2010 for around £24 million and recent reports suggested that Chelsea were ready to test City's resolve with a summer bid.
