Yaya Toure will leave Manchester City at the end of the season, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been one of City's most influential players since joining the club from Barcelona in 2010.

He played a key role in the Premier League title wins of 2012 and 2014 but has fallen down the pecking order this term and started just seven games in all competitions.

City are due to be presented with the Premier League trophy for their latest title triumph after tomorrow's clash with Huddersfield at the Etihad Stadium before ensuring Toure, who is out of contract in the summer, is given a fitting send-off after their final home game against Brighton next Wednesday.
