Manchester City know they need to think about how to fill the void Yaya Toure will leave in the new year.

Toure, named African Player of the Year on Thursday night, will be required for international duty with Ivory Coast at the African Nations Cup in South Africa in January. The 29-year-old was sorely missed by City during last year's tournament with his eight-game absence coinciding with the Premier League club's worst spell of the season.

Midfielder Jack Rodwell said: "Yaya would be a big loss for us. He's been amazing so far and has been the engine in midfield, so he would be missed."
