Man City hero Yaya Toure: I'd love England return

Manchester City hero Yaya Toure admits he'd welcome a return to England.

Toure, 36, has just helped Qingdao Huanghai win promotion to the Chinese Premier League, but won't be staying for next season.

He told Sky Sports: "I would love it (to return to England), but it depends on the team. In my head I can see myself playing for one or maybe two years.

"Sometimes when football players quit their career early, it's because there are people trying to make you quit. It does not come from your heart.

"It's complicated. I remember when I was in Greece and people were wondering about my career - I wasn't happy about that. I want to be in control."
