Manchester City defender Kolo Toure insists that he does not want to leave the Premier League champions.

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has insisted that he will stay and fight for his place at the club.

Toure is currently Roberto Mancini's fourth choice at centre-back behind Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott and Matija Nastasic, but he has revealed that he has no intention of leaving the club.

Toure told BBC Sport: "I want to stay. I want to fight for my place.

"It's difficult. I was a key player. I've done everything but that will not change the manager's decision."

The 31-year-old has scored two goals in 62 league appearances for the club since joining from Arsenal in 2009.
