City had already parted ways five players, whose contracts expired at the end of the season.

Toure's contract also expired at the end of the 2016-2017 campaign, but the club have now confirmed that he has signed a one-year extension.

The 34-year-old, who joined the Citizens from FC Barcelona in 2010, expressed his delight at extending his stay at the club.

“I’m delighted. I told myself the journey at City is not done and when I received a call from Txiki and talked to the manager I was very delighted," Toure told the club's official website.

"When I was first coming here [in 2010] I was trying to be part of a new story, of something special at this club. I am very lucky now to be part of a great club with great players around me who are helping me to achieve my targets.

"Of course I want to win trophies, that is very important to me. I want to enjoy it at this age still and remaining here is a massive, massive thing. It is a great club, going in the right direction with new players who are coming in. Our mentality is always to win week in, week out and I’m delighted with the fans as well.”
