“My agent is working on some incoming offers, but for now I’ll focus on Manchester City and contribute all I can to the team’s success,” Kolo said on Tuesday.
“I love the Premier League and would like to remain here even after departing from City. However, time is flying and my days are numbered but if no good deal comes I’d have to go wherever they want me to go,” he said.
Kolo was part of the Ivorian outfit that crashed out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in the quarterfinals and is one of those fans and the media want kicked out of the Elephants fold.
