Manuel Pellegrini reveals Yaya Toure talks

0:29                                            Check out Yaya Toure's unique farewell as he was surrounded by his team-mates during his exit

Former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure is closing on a move to Olympiakos, sources close to the Greek club have told ESPN FC.

Seluk himself added fuel to the fire, but shot down links to West Ham or Crystal Palace - leaving Premier League fans on edge.

His agent attracted intrigue over the midfielder's next club when he revealed last night that the Ivorian has undergone a medical in London and is close to signing for his new club.

"Yaya Touré has passed a medical in London", he wrote.

Well, the Gunners are able to sign Yaya Toure because he is free on transfer.

Toure began his professional career in Belgium with Beveren, and had spells in Ukraine, Greece and with Monaco in Ligue 1 before coming to prominence with a move to Barcelona in 2007.

'Yaya is a champion.

"I explained to Yaya why he could not come here because we have all the player we need in his position. The last place is not for him".

The Hammers brought in a host of signings this summer, as new boss Pellegrini was backed with a raft of additions to try and hit back after a disappointing season.

"In the moment that we were doing our squad list, that position was covered by other players".

In response to Seluk's comments, Pellegrini said: 'The words of the agent of Yaya were unfortunate. I suppose West Ham was one option.

The three-time Premier League victor spent one season with the Greek giants before joining Monaco in 2006.

Toure's chances of playing regular first-team football differ greatly depending on which club he joins this summer.

Betfair then made Fulham the 15/8 favourites to secure Toure's signature with Arsenal behind at 2/1.
