Yaya Linked With Three EPL Clubs, Agent Makes Surprise Admission

Departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has been linked with three Premier League clubs, and his agent has also made a surprise admission about the African superstar's wage demands.

The Ivorian, who will leave the Citizens at the end of the season, received a special farewell from his club during and after their 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, in what was their final home game of the campaign.

Toure started the match as captain, and the club also confirmed that they have named a training pitch (see images in the gallery above) after the four-time African Footballer of the Year.

The 34-year-old is reportedly keen on staying in England's top flight, however, and has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs, including Everton, Burnley and newly-promoted side Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to the Daily Mirror.

Meanwhile, Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk is confident the African can still add a lot of quality to a potential Premier League suitor, insisting the midfielder will pay back half his wages if his new club are unhappy with his services.

"Yaya is fit and desperate to prove he's still the best central midfielder in the Premier League," Seluk told Sky Sports.

"Ivory Coast will not be in Russia for the World Cup and next season he will be fit, rested and stronger than ever.

"He's happy to accept a one-year deal to stay in England. And if his club are not satisfied with his performances, he will pay back half his wages, or the club can cancel his contract immediately with no compensation."

Overall, Toure has made 316 appearances since joining City from FC Barcelona in 2010, scoring 79 goals and assisting another 50 strikes.

He has lifted seven trophies in England so far, and will be remembered for his 2011 FA Cup-winning goal that ended a barren run of 35 years without a title for the club.
