Yaya Toure has agreed a new one-year deal to stay with Manchester City.

The Ivorian was out of contract this summer having been with club since signing from Barcelona in 2010.

Toure, who turned 34 last month, was pleased to put pen to paper and told the club’s official website: ‘I’m delighted. I told myself the journey at City is not done and when I received a call from Txiki and talked to the manager I was very delighted.

‘When I was first coming here [in 2010] 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.’

City’s Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: ‘Yaya has been a fantastic servant for Manchester City and continues to be a vital member of Pep Guardiola’s squad.

‘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.

‘Yaya has been central to the successes we’ve had over the past seven years and he has a vital part play next season.’

Toure has been an integral figure during his seven years in Manchester, helping the club win six trophies, including the Premier League title twice.

The 20-year-old has hardly had a look in at City since January and with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus ahead of him in the pecking order, that is unlikely to change, especially as Pep Guardiola is expected to bring in at least one more forward in the summer.

While bottom-placed Sunderland is officially relegated, Boro know that should the dream scenario come true over the next few days, they will be within three points of safety - emphasis on the word "dream", because it will take an awful lot for that to come to fruition
