West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has stated the club will not make an approach for out of contract midfielder Yaya Toure.
Sky Sports report that the Hammers had been linked with the Ivorian in national reports, but Pellegrini has now quashed those rumours.
Toure’s eight-year affiliation with Manchester City came to an end this summer after Pep Guardiola decided he wasn’t worthy of a new contract at the Etihad.
The 35-year-old was a lynchpin of the City side that rose to the domestic and European elite, making 316 appearances and scoring 79 goals in total.
Toure played a vital role as City won the 2013-14 Premier League under Pellegrini, scoring 20 goals from the center of midfield.
