Yaya Toure’s agent, Dimitry Seluk, has claimed that the player has passed a medical in London and is “close to signing a new contract”.
Toure, 35, has been a free agent since leaving Manchester City at the end of last season.
The Ivory Coast midfielder was linked with a move to West Ham to reunite with former City manager Manuel Pellegrini, but the Hammers boss dismissed those rumours two weeks ago.
It however appears Toure is poised to complete his next move.
“Toure has passed a medical in London. Yaya is close to signing a new contract,” Seluk tweeted.
Toure won three Premier League titles with City.
