Yaya Toure is adamant he is not thinking about leaving Manchester City in the January transfer window.
The 33-year-old seemed likely to depart earlier this season after falling out with head coach Pep Guardiola at the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but he has been reinstated to the first team in recent weeks after apologising for comments made by his agent.
The former Ivory Coast international has still been linked with a January exit, but the midfielder – whose contract is due to expire in June – has dismissed suggestions he could leave Etihad Stadium in favour of a lucrative move to China.
“No, I will not speak to other clubs during the transfer window,” Toure said.
“My focus is on City. The future is there because for now the league is not finished. Me and the guys are always focused.
That is the main point. I am a footballer, I belong to the field.
“City have always been a team who fight to the end to win a trophy and at the moment we are not happy with the position in the league. We have to fight. We are starting the second half of the season and I think we will have to be almost perfect.
“We will have to win all the games when we play the top four. The lads, the fans, the manager, we are all understanding that and we will try to do our best to get there,” he concluded.
