Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Touré is set to arrive in London for talks about a move back to the Premier League.
The 35-year old moved to Greek club Olympiacos in the summer, but has left them by mutual consent after playing just five times for them, allegedly because they were unable, due to financial restrictions, to honour the “pay-as-you-play” deal which was originally negotiated.
Now, according to The Daily Mirror, Touré wants to return to England where he still has a family home, having rejected offers from the MLS and the Chinese Super League.
Prior to the move to Greece, Touré had been linked with clubs such as West Ham and Crystal Palace, and both teams may be ready to revive their interest in a player who won 3 League titles, the FA Cup, and the League Cup twice during his time with City.
A former Ivory Coast international, Touré became a British citizen in August.
