Dimitry Seluk: Yaya Toure has passed medical in London

Yaya Toure has passed a medical in London says agent

Yaya Toure has passed a medical in London says agent

Toure spent eight years with Manchester City before being released this summer.

The Ivory Coast worldwide had been hotly linked with a move to big-spending West Ham who are now managed by his former Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini, but Toure's agent has revealed on Twitter that his client will not be joining the Hammers, or Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace.

He wrote: 'Toure has passed a medical in London. "Yaya is close to signing a new contract", Seluk tweeted.

Guardiola responded to the allegation by saying: "It's a lie and he [Toure] knows it".

But Seluk said West Ham were not contenders as they were not fighting at the right end of the table. Yaya is a champion.

The contest has been overshadowed in recent days by the death of John McCain , Arizona's longtime Republican senator, on Saturday. With a consistently conservative voting record, Arizonans elected McCain to the Senate six times, including in 2016.

Fans queried if West Ham or Crystal Palace was the unknown destination for Toure but Seluk was quick to rule out both clubs. The last place is not for him'.

The Hammers, Crystal Palace are not one of the two side's he claimed in follow up posts.

The Ivorian free agent appears close to sealing a move but his representative only teased that the club is in the nation's capital, stopping short of revealing the identity of the team. "Can Yaya go there?"

However, with the English transfer window and registration for the Premier League now closed until January, Toure would not be able to officially register for a London club until the start of 2019 - keeping him out of competitive action for the first half of the season.
