Signing Yaya Toure Not West Ham’s Priority – Manuel Pellegrini

share on:

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has revealed he held talks with Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure over a possible move to the London Stadium, but has denied reports of a deal in January.

Yaya Toure was a free agent at the start of the season after his release from City, and after his contract with Greek side Olympiakos was terminated, is once again available for a transfer.

Whilst acknowledging he had spoken to the 35-year-old previously, Pellegrini distanced himself from any imminent move for his former charge.

“I spoke with Yaya, yes – at the beginning of the season,” Pellegrini said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror

“It is not a priority because we already have players in that position.”
