Ivory Coast legend Yaya Toure is closing on signing for a new Premier League club after his agent confirmed he passed a medical in London.
Toure, 35, has been patiently on the lookout for his next club since ending his glittering eight-year spell with Manchester City last season.
And his agent Dimitri Seluk confirmed on his official Twitter account that his next move is close to being finalised.

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.
The Hammers, Crystal Palace are not one of the two side's he claimed in follow up posts.
Which leaves Fulham, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea as the other possible destinations, but in hindsight, medicals can take place outside the city where clubs are based.
It's not West Ham, 100%.— Dimitry Seluk (@dmitriseluk) August 28, 2018
Yaya is a champion. The last place is not for him ???? https://t.co/eDGeI0EvFf
