Yaya Toure is set to end speculation regarding his future at Manchester City by signing a new contract according to The Sun.

Reports in recent weeks had suggested that Toure was considering leaving the club this summer after City failed to offer him a new deal.

It was suggested that the midfielder felt undervalued by the club and was ready to quit unless negotiations on a new deal began soon.

That has galvanised Manchester City into a reaction with the club keen to hold on to one of their biggest stars.

Toure now looks set to put pen to paper in a whopping £45 million deal. The midfield powerhouse has committed his future to Manchester City for the next four years and in return will receive an eye watering pay package of £220,000 a week.

The 29 year old arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Barcelona in 2010 for a fee reported to be in the region of £24 million.

The midfielder played a key role in the team that secured City their first ever Premier League title last season and while the team have underperformed this year, Toure has remained one of the more impressive players in Roberto Mancini’s side.
