Yaya Toure Signs One-Year Contract Extension With Man City

Yaya Toure has signed a one-year contract extension at Manchester City, the club announced on Thursday.
The midfielder seemed to be on the way out after clashing with Pep Guardiola, but he fought his way back into contention and has now prolonged his contract with the club.
"I'm delighted. I told myself the journey at City is not done and when I received a call from [director of football] Txiki Begiristain and talked to the manager I was very delighted," he told the club's website.

"When I was first coming here I was trying to be part of a new story, of something special at this club. I am very lucky now to be part of a great club with great players around me who are helping me to achieve my targets.

"Of course I want to win trophies, that is very important to me. I want to enjoy it at this age still and remaining here is a massive, massive thing.

"It is a great club, going in the right direction with new players who are coming in. Our mentality is always to win week in, week out and I'm delighted with the fans as well."
“Yaya has been a fantastic servant for Manchester City and continues to be a vital member of Pep Guardiola’s squad," Txiki Begiristain, City’s Director of Football added.

“He is one of our most experienced and popular players and we couldn’t be happier that he is staying with us as we embark on what we all hope will be a very exciting season."
Toure is the only player out of six senior players, whose deals expired at City, to sign a new contract.
