Manchester City have fined defender Kolo Toure six weeks' wages following the defender's suspension for a positive drugs test, the club confirmed today.

Toure completed a six-month ban in September after failing a drug test earlier this year. City began disciplinary proceedings against the Ivorian international last week which concluded with a fine.

Following the conclusion of an internal disciplinary process, Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Kolo Toure has received a fine of six weeks' wages.
