Yaya Toure’s agent has posted a cryptic message on Twitter claiming the Ivory Coast international has passed a medical in London.
Toure’s deal at the Etihad expired earlier this summer as he ended his eight-year affair with the club in style – winning his third Premier League title in record-breaking fashion.
The former Barcelona midfielder is yet to announce where he will be moving next, but his agent dropped a big hint on Tuesday evening suggesting news of his future is close.
Dimitry Seluk posted on Twitter: “Yaya Toure has passed a medical in London. Yaya is close to signing a new contract.”
He confirmed the player is not moving to West Ham or Crystal Palace in follow-up posts.
West Ham boss Mauricio Pellegrini had already ruled out a move for the free agent, who he won the Premier League with while in charge of Manchester City.
