Cote d'Ivoire international Yaya Toure will join his brother Kolo at Manchester City, after he signed a five-year contract with the Premier League club on Friday.

Man City announced Yaya Toure's arrival on Friday but no details of the transfer fee was revealed.

The 28-year-old midfielder left reigning Spanish league titlists Barcelona to join Man City, which his brother Kolo is also playing for.

Toure moved to Barcelona from French club Monaco in 2007, going on to win two La Liga titles as well as the 2009 Champions League.

Toure was a member of Cote d'Ivoire's World Cup squad in South Africa, but failed to help the team to avoid a group stage exit.
