MYSTERY? Agent confirms Yaya in London for medical

Toure had previously stated that he would like to stay in London and was initially linked with several Premier League clubs.

There was much intrigue last night when it emerged that Yaya Touré had passed a medical in London.

Arsenal fans underwhelmed at the prospect of a 35-year-old Yaya Toure signing for your club can stand down, as it would appear the Ivorian midfielder is close to re-joining former club Olympiakos.

The four-time African Footballer of the Year left Manchester City at the end of the 2017/18 season after his contract expired. "Yaya is close to signing a new contract." he revealed on Twitter.

Toure's agent insists that he will not be becoming a West Ham or Crystal Palace player, which rules out two of few viable options for the three-time Premier League champion.

The Hammers grew into the contest and attacked a nervy Arsenal defence at any given opportunity. But also, the win gives the confidence for the players.

The club are now in England as they prepare for the second leg of their Europa League qualifier against Burnley, which they lead 3-1, on Thursday.

Toure can't play having not been registered for the first-leg, but would be eligble for the group stages should Olympiakos progress.

Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure will join Arsenal on a free transfer "in the coming hours" after completing his medical in London, according to CalcioMercato.

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