11:30    08 Aug 2018

Manchester City legend Yaya Toure is still on the lookout for a new club, a month after his contract at the Etihad Stadium officially expired.

Toure, 35, enjoyed eight successful seasons in the English Premier League and was heavily linked with extending his stay in the country, but despite reported interest from West Ham United, Wolves Everton and Crystal Palace he is yet to find a new home for the upcoming campaign.

The Ivory Coast international won three league titles at City, racking up 316 appearances for the Sky Blues across all competitions - contributing directly to 129 goals in his time at the club.

According to French media outlet Foot Mercato, the reason behind Toure's troubles to find a new club is because of the player's high salary demands.

Toure is reportedly demanding at least £100,000-a-week, this despite his agent Dimitri Seluk having claimed that the midfielder would join a top six club in the EPL for £1-a-week.

The English Premier League officially kicks-off this coming weekend with defending champions Manchester City away to Arsenal.

Toure is fifth on the club's list for most appearances in the English Premier League with 230, 36 behind Joe Hart who occupies top spot.
