Yaya Touré plays down rumours he is unhappy at Manchester City

• Ivory Coast midfielder insists he is 'happy' at club
• Rodney Marsh claims 'rumblings from within camp'

Yaya Touré has played down rumours that he is unsettled at Manchester City.

Rodney Marsh, the former City forward, claimed on Wednesday that Touré was not content at the club. However, the midfielder, currently away on international duty with Ivory Coast, took to his Twitter account to insist he remained committed to Manuel Pellegrini's side.

"Hey buddies, don't listen to the rumours, I'm happy at city," Touré, who signed a fresh four-year contract in April, wrote on his @Toure_yaya42 account. "The Touré brothers are in Casa and are missing Manchester," he added along with a picture of himself and his brother, Kolo.

Marsh earlier told TalkSport: "People close to Manchester City tell me Yaya Touré is not very happy and he's one of their great players. When you start to hear rumblings from within the camp, and you see the way Touré played last weekend [at Sunderland], when he was strolling around and didn't look interested, I'm wondering now if it will all go a little bit the other way.

"It looks like they're throwing billions of pounds at players but keep coming up short. I think this season could end in tears at Man City."
