Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Manchester City gaffer Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Ivory Coast football star Yaya Toure will leave the club at the end of last Premier League season.

Seluk brutally ruled out West Ham and then Crystal Palace.

His agent Dimitry Seluk posted a cryptic message to his twitter account on Tuesday night suggesting the midfielder could be London bound.

But West Ham boss Pellegrini - who said the agent's choice of words about the Hammers was "unfortunate" - said: "I spoke with Yaya". Today, Yaya Toure is linked with Arsenal...

He is reportedly set to earn £2 million (R37 million) a year after tax in Greece, according to the English publication, and would be returning to the team he won the Greek Super League title and the Greek Cup with in 2005/06.

He made a total of 316 appearances in all competitions for the Citizens, scoring 79 goals and winning a total of six trophies.

He tweeted, "I'm sure none of you are thinking this Yaya Toure stuff has anything to do with Arsenal, but just in case there is any doubt - If he is moving to a London club, it is certainly not Arsenal".

The Saints appear to have chose to upgrade at backup quarterback behind Drew Brees this year. He then got up, waved goodbye to the players and then the bus drove off without him.

'Yaya is a champion.

"We needed money to bring in other positions, so I explained to Yaya clearly why he can not come here but I hope he will find a good club, a big club, because he is a very good player".

"I spoke with Yaya".

However, Burnley did face Olympiakos last week in the first leg of their Europa League playoff tie with the second leg taking place tonight.

Toure spent the 2005/06 season at Olympiakos before joining Monaco.
