Kolo Toure has accepted a six-week fine from Manchester City for failing a drugs test, the Premier League leaders have confirmed.
The Ivorian defender was suspended for six months by the Football Association in February after testing positive for a banned substance.
That ban has since been served and Toure has returned to City's first-team plans.
The issue has dragged on, though, with Roberto Mancini confirming at the end of October that the club were to hold an internal disciplinary hearing.
Difficulties in arranging a date, and the terms of Toure's ban, made it difficult for City to hold talks until the 2011/12 campaign was well under way.
They have, however, now met with the centre-half and discussed the matter further.
City have decided to fine the 30-year-old six weeks' wages and hope the matter can now be brought to a close.
Toure is also keen to move on with his career and has accepted the sanction without complaint.
A statement released by the club on their official website read: "Following the conclusion of an internal disciplinary process, Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Kolo Toure has received a fine of 6 weeks' wages which relates to doping offences committed by him earlier this year.
"Kolo accepts the decision and he and the club now wish to draw a line under this matter and focus on the season ahead."
