Manchester City powerhouse Yaya Toure has dismissed any suggestion of him heading for the exit at the Etihad Stadium during the January transfer window.

The Ivorian midfielder was frozen out of Pep Guardiola's squad earlier in the season due to a disagreement with Toure's agent, but the 33-year-old has returned with great influence.

"No, I will not be speaking to other clubs during the transfer window," Toure told Sky Sports.

"My focus is on City. The future is there because for now the league is not finished. Me and the guys are always focused. That is the main point. I am a footballer, I belong to the field."

Guardiola's City is third in the Premier League, seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Manchester City travels to east London on Friday for the FA Cup third round, where it meets West Ham United.
