Kolo Toure has stated that he will leave Manchester City this summer, but hopes to go out on a high and help City deliver another trophy.
Toure, whose brother Yaya also plays for the Eastland’s club, runs out of contract in the summer and is unsure as of yet where he will be heading.
Toure told the Manchester Evening News: "My agent is working on that but at the moment I’m playing at City and doing everything I can do to help City trophies – that’s important."
Toure thinks his time in England will soon come to an end, as he continued by saying: “I have always liked the Premier League and I want to stay in the top leagues but time goes and if there is no chance I have to go where they want me.
“Didier Drogba is in Turkey – but it’s difficult to talk about that now – there’s no chance of staying here but the Premier is my first option for sure.”
It is likely Toure would be very interested in a move to Turkey, as he would be teaming up with his fellow countryman Drogba.
For now though, Toure’s sole focus will be on the visit of Chelsea this Sunday, as Manchester City look to end a run of three Premier League games without a win and spark life back into the title race.
They currently trail local rivals Manchester United by 12 points and will be hoping Sir Alex Ferguson's slip up to bottom club Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
