Manchester City player Yaya Toure has allegedly been caught speeding at 124mph by police in Staffordshire.

The Ivory Coast international is believed to have been traveling along the M6 motorway near Stoke-on-Trent on Wednesday evening, when police stopped his Porsche 911.

The Sun reports that when stopped, Toure told officers: "Don't worry, someone at the club will sort this out. They will get all the paperwork."

A spokeswoman for Staffordshire Police said: "At around 8.40pm on Wednesday 20 May, officers stopped a vehicle traveling at 124mph on the northbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 15 and 16," the Independent writes.

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

Toure was allowed to continue on his way but will have to provide police with his driving licence and insurance details within a week of being stopped. He will then be summonsed to appear before magistrates.

The midfielder, who earns £210,000 a week at the Manchester team, has been linked to a move to Inter Milan, though City has played down speculation.

Yaya's brother, Kolo Toure, escaped a driving ban this month for being caught speeding twice in one week, after his legal representatives argued that his life would be put in danger by traveling on public transport.
