Yaya Toure Already Set To Come Out Of Retirement, New Club Lined Up

Mere days after it emerged he was retiring from the game altogether, Yaya Toure is set to continue playing in the second tier of Chinese football.

Six days ago, the player's controversial agent, Dimitry Seluk, announced the news that Yaya had called it quits, revealing that the Ivorian powerhouse would concentrate on a career as a coach.

However, Toure himself refuted those claims in a statement on Twitter - stating that he wasn't thinking about "full-time coaching" just yet.


And now, it's been reported, via the Daily Mail, that Toure is poised to have a medical with Qingdao Huanghai, who play in the second tier of Chinese football and have former West Ham striker Ricardo Vaz Te in their ranks.


After leaving Manchester City following eight trophy-laden seasons, Toure returned to former club Olympiakos in September but had his contract terminated after just three months in his second spell with the Greek outfit.

The former Monaco man has collected multiple titles across his club career, including the Champions League and three Premier League titles.



Touré has also won the Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, as well as being named the African Footballer of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
