Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has denied he has spoken to mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain about a summer transfer to the Parc des Prices, and says he will do all he can to achieve success at the Etihad Stadium this season.

Toure has been linked with a Manchester City exit after reports emerged of a contract wrangle between the representatives of the player and his employers, which has led to speculation of interest in his signature from Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Paris Saint-Germain has also been touted as a potential destination for the 29-year-old, with suggestions Toure is in advanced talks with the Ligue 1 leaders about a move at the end of the season.

The Ivory Coast international, however, has rejected these claims and has dismissed reports about his future as nothing more than paper talk, assuring Manchester City fans that he is committed to achieve this season's objectives with the club.

"No, I did not head to PSG," Toure told Sport-Ivoire. "You know that with the approach of the transfer window, there are many things that are said in the newspapers. 

"We are professional and so far I have not given any agreement with any club. I am for the moment a City player and I will fight so that we finished the season in good conditions."

The former Barcelona player added his future is down to Manchester City, and promised to continue 'entertaining' the club's supporters for however long he is at the club.

"In a club there are players and administrators," Toure continued. "We are like soldiers and we carry out what employers say."

"The most important thing for me is to continue to have fun and to entertain the public."
