Kolo Toure is considering his future at Manchester City over the club's plan to fine him.

The Mirror says City have launched a bizarre bid to take away £1.5million of Toure's image rights in a bitter battle over his failed drugs test.

The stunned Ivory Coast defender has told friends he will consider leaving the club in January if they succeed at a hearing, due to take place later today, chaired by club executive Brian Marwood.
