Yaya Toure set for Olympiakos move after 'London medical' agent talk sources

His agent, the always entertaining Dimitry Seluk - of Yaya didn't get a birthday cake fame - confirmed in a tweet this week that Yaya had passed a medical in London and was close to signing a new contract.

Yaya Toure drew the curtains on a highly successful eight-year spell at Manchester City at the end of last season after securing his third Premier League, which he added to a brace of League Cups and an FA Cup.

Yaya Toure's agent has posted a cryptic message on Twitter claiming the Ivory Coast global has passed a medical in London.

The Ivory Coast global had been hotly linked with a move to big-spending West Ham who are now managed by his former Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini, but Toure's agent has revealed on Twitter that his client will not be joining the Hammers, or Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace.

Asked by a few excited West Ham fans if he was moving to the London Stadium, he bit back: 'It's not West Ham, 100%.

It looks like Seluk, not for the first time, was trolling, with The Times revealing that 35-year-old Touré has agreed to rejoin one of his former clubs. "Yaya is a champion".

However, the Ivorian will not be qualified for Thursday's Europa League showdown against Burnley even if the deal goes through before game time. Pep meant to replace him with Jorginho - we all know how that ended.

Toure joined City from Barcelona in 2010 for £24m and proved to be on the club's best-ever buys.
