​Agent: Yaya Toure wants to stay in Premiership

Yaya Toure plans to stay in the Premier League next season and is willing to pay back half his wages if his new club are not satisfied with his performances, his agent Dimitri Seluk has told Sky Sports News.

Seluk was unwilling to discuss which Premier League teams are in talks to sign the 34 year old, but said negotiations would begin immediately after the end of the season.

"Yaya is fit and desperate to prove he's still the best central midfielder in the Premier League," Seluk said.

"Ivory Coast will not be in Russia for the World Cup and next season he will be fit, rested and stronger than ever.

"He's happy to accept a one-year deal to stay in England. And if his club are not satisfied with his performances, he will pay back half his wages, or the club can cancel his contract immediately, with no compensation."
