Manchester City's Yaya Toure allegedly told police the football club would deal with "the paperwork" after he was caught speeding at 124mph on the M6.

The footballer was driving his Porsche 911 on Wednesday when he was pulled over.

According to The Sun, Toure said: "Don't worry, someone at the club will sort this out. They will get all the paperwork."

He was allowed to drive home but must provide the police with his driving license and will be given a court summons.

A source reportedly said: "He was very blasé when stopped and just seemed to think it would all get sorted out."

A Staffordshire Police spokesman told the Daily Mail: "At around 8.40pm on Wednesday 20 May, officers stopped a vehicle travelling at 124mph on the northbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 15 and 16.

"The driver, a 32-year-old man from Cheshire, will be reported for summons to appear at court on a future date."

Last weekend, it was reported that Liverpool defender Kolo Toure dodged a driving ban for speeding after his lawyer argued that the footballer could be mobbed by fans or pushed under a train if he was forced to use public transport.

The 34-year-old was caught driving at 57mph in a 40mph zone, then at 72 mph in a 50pmh zone.

His lawyer Lisa Wilson said in court: "Using public transport like buses or trains often leads to a surge of people which is a safety issue to him and the public.

"If that happened on the train track, someone could be pushed under a train by accident, or under cars on the roads."
