English Premier League side, Manchester City have announced that Yaya Toure has signed a new one-year deal with the Club.

The Ivorian midfielder made a switch to City from Barcelona in 2010 and has been an integral figure in the six trophies the Club has won during that time.

His current deal expired at the end of the 2016/17 season, but he will now extend his stay with the Blues to an eighth campaign.

Speaking on the official City's official website, Yaya Toure confessed that he is delighted to have extended his stay with the Blues and can’t wait for the new campaign.

“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.”

With his invaluable contributions since joining the club, many agree that Yaya Toure's place in City's history is assured.
