Dimitry Seluk: Yaya Toure has passed medical in London

Dimitry Seluk: Yaya Toure has passed medical in London

His agent attracted intrigue over the midfielder's next club when he revealed last night that the Ivorian has undergone a medical in London and is close to signing for his new club.

The Ivory Coast global fell out-of-favour under Pep Guardiola and left City when his contract expired at the end of last season so he's available on a free transfer and has been on the look-out for a new club in recent months.

Toure cemented himself as a City legend during his eight-year stay at the Etihad Stadium as he helped lead the club to three Premier League titles and three domestic cups since joining from Barcelona in the summer of 2010.

Toure played a part in City breaking the Premier League points record last season, but was not offered a new contract in Manchester.

"It's not West Ham, 100%", he added.

But Seluk said West Ham were not contenders as they were not fighting at the right end of the table.

His agent Dimitry Seluk has ruled out the Hammers as Toure's future destination though, seemingly taking a slight jibe at Manuel Pellegrini's side in the process.

The midfielder also won the 2015 African Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast.

He then moved to Monaco a year later after enjoying a fine tournament at the 2006 World Cup.

However, the Times are now reporting that while his medical did take place in London, Toure is actually on the brink of sealing a move back to Olympiakos - the club he first joined as a youngster in 2005 following a brief trial at Arsenal.
