Barcelona's Toure rejects reports of Premiership move

Yaya Toure has stressed that he wants to stay at Barcelona after being linked with a switch to either Manchester City or Arsenal. The Ivory Coast international fell down the pecking order at Camp Nou earlier this season and reports suggested he could leave during the January transfer window.

However, the 26-year-old has reiterated his commitment to Barcelona and hopes to remain with the Catalan giants for a long time to come.

"I have heard about interest from Manchester City and Arsenal but my future is at Barcelona," he said in the Daily Mirror.

"I have spoken to the directors at the club, but I don't want to leave and my only mission is to stay and be a success at the club."
