He is yet to announce his future but his agent dropped a major hint on Twitter, suggesting that news about his future is close. Dimitry Seluk posted on Twitter: “Yaya Touré has passed a medical in London. Yaya is close to signing a new contract.”

In a following series of tweets, he confirmed that the player will no be moving to Crystal Palace or West Ham, and West Ham manager Pellegrino also confirmed that he will not be signing the free agent with whom he had previously won the Premier League at Manchester City. Earlier in May, his agent revealed that Yaya intends to stay in the Premier League and will also be willing to return half his wages if the club is not satisfied with his level of performance. 

“Yaya is fit and desperate to prove he’s still the best central midfielder in the Premier League,” Seluk said. ” Ivory Coast will not be in Russia for the World Cup and next season he will be fit, rested and stronger than ever. He’s happy to accept a one-year deal to stay in England. And if his club are not satisfied with his performances, he will pay back half his wages, or the club can cancel his contract immediately, with no compensation.”  Since signing from Barcelona 8 years ago, he scored 79 goals in 315 appearances for Manchester City winning three Premier League trophies, three EFL Cups and one FA Cup.
