Cape Town - Yaya Toure is reportedly on the verge of joining a club in London after his agent revealed the former Manchester City midfielder has completed a medical.

Dimitry Seluk Tweeted that a deal was close: "Toure has passed a medical in London. Yaya is close to signing a new contract."

Toure has over 100 caps for the Ivory Coast and has previously played for Beveren, Metalurh Donetsk, Olympiacos, Monaco and Barcelona.
