Yaya Toure is on the verge of signing for a Premier League club after completing his medical, the Ivorian’s agent—Dimitry Seluk—revealed on Twitter.
Toure’s agent also confirmed that the former Manchester City man would not be signing for either West Ham United or Crystal Palace.
After eight glorious seasons with the Sky Blues, the 34-year-old central midfielder is a free agent and if his outspoken agent is to be believed, is set to play for a capital club.
Toure was given an emotional send-off in City’s final home game of last season and the club paid tribute to the Ivorian by naming a training pitch after him at the City Football Academy.
Premier League clubs are, however, allowed to sign free agents like the ex-Barcelona midfielder until the end of the month.
