Yaya Toure transfer twist: Dimitry Seluk congratulates free agent over citizenship

West Ham were most strongly linked with Toure with Manuel Pellegrini previously coaching the 35-year-old at City

Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure will join Arsenal on a free transfer "in the coming hours" after completing his medical in London, according to CalcioMercato.

While speculation was rife that he could link up with West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, whom he won the Premier League title with during their time together at the Citizens - this was ruled out by Seluk.

Toure had previously stated that he would like to stay in London and was initially linked with several Premier League clubs.

Toure then played 29 times for the Greek side in 2005/06 (scoring thrice) before moving onto Monaco the following season.

The Ivorian is a free agent after his contract at the Etihad wasn't renewed, and he looks set for a move back to Athens.

Toure left Manchester City at the end of his contract this summer after being a bit part player under Pep Guardiola over the last two seasons and has been on the lookout for a new club to continue his career. "The last place is not for him".

You never know. but hopefully kolo has said to him to come to Celtic. stranger things have happened lol.

Seluk kept fans guessing on Twitter today by posting an image of Toure mocked up in Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, Tottenham and Watford shirts. However, the Daily Mirror has now claimed he will return to his former club Olympiacos.

"My congratulations to @YayaToure!" he wrote, followed by an England flag and thumbs up emoji.

Toure could be in the stands at Turf Moor tomorrow when Olympiakos take on Burnley in the Europa League play-off round.
