Toure is yet to feature for the Citizens in the league this season following some indecent statements made by his agent Dmitri Seluk which prompted the Spaniard to demand  for an apology.

In a statement on Friday morning, he apologised on behalf of himself and those who represent him.

And Guardiola stated that he had a private conversation with the former African footballer of the Year winner after his action and described it as  a good development for the club.

"I spoke with Yaya today (Friday), of course it' s  a private conversation. It was good for Manchester City," the former Bayern Munich coach told reporters ahead of Saturday's home clash against Middlesbrough.

"Yaya is in all our meetings and all our training sessions. I spoke with him and it's good, that's all. Now we are on the game against Middlesbrough.

"I answered about Yaya. I don't want to answer any more. You know the situation."

Yaya's last outing for City came  during the second leg of Champions League qualifier against Steau Bucharest on August 24.
