Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has once again refused to commit his future to the club after admitting he does not know whether he will still be at the Etihad Stadium next season.

There has been huge speculation as to whether the powerful midfielder will remain with the defending Premier League champions beyond the end of the campaign due to a number of incidents.

In May last year his agent posted on Twitter that Toure had become unhappy at Manchester City due to the time it took the club to give him a new deal in 2013 and was also upset that no-one had wished him happy birthday.

More recently the Ivory Coast international passed up the chance to deny his interest in a move to Paris Saint-Germain with the midfielder saying he “would never close the door to a big club”.

Toure, who is currently with the Elephants at the African Cup of Nations, has stoked the fire even more after remarks made to CNN regarding his contract and future.

“That’s a big question and that’s an easy question as well, and you have an easy answer – we’ll see,” he said. “I don’t know. I’m at City at the moment.”

City will be hoping to keep hold of one of their most prized assets for the foreseeable future due to his importance for the first team.

The midfielder has been a regular fixture for the Citizens this season having made 18 appearances in the Premier League, scoring seven goals in the process.

Toure has also played an integral part in helping the club advance to the last 16 of the Champions League and Manuel Pellegrini’s side are priced at 16.00 to win the competition for the first time.
