Manuel Pellegrini: I rejected Yaya Toure

Yaya Toure has passed a medical in London says agent

Touré has been a free agent since his contract with Manchester City finished at the end of last season, and it seems suitors haven't exactly been queuing around the block for his signature.

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has hit back at Yaya Toure's agent and claimed he turned down the chance to sign the midfielder this summer.

Ivorian global footballer, Yaya Toure, has acquired British citizenship, according to his agent in a tweet posted on Wednesday.

Toure cemented himself as a City legend during his eight-year stay at the Etihad Stadium as he helped lead the club to three Premier League titles and three domestic cups since joining from Barcelona in the summer of 2010.

However, latest update have made it known that former Man City midfielder, Yaya Toure has moved to English club, Arsenal.

'Yaya is a champion.

In just four of 36 races Tuesday night, a female Republican candidate emerged as the preferred choice of GOP primary voters. He called Gillum a "failed socialist mayor" who has "allowed crime and many other problems to flourish in the city".

Alexandre Lacazette: The 27-year-old Arsenal striker is considering his future at the Emirates, fearing he does not fit in with the style of play of new boss Unai Emery, le10sport reports.

Yaya Toure's preferred destination was London, but no clubs held a firm interest in the player.

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

Four Premier League London teams remain - Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Fulham - with many pointing out that lower league clubs should not be discarded. The last place is not for him, ' Pellegrini confirmed.

"The words of the agent of Yaya were unfortunate". I suppose West Ham was one option.

Toure spent a season at Olympiakos early in his career, winning a league and cup double before moving on to Monaco.
