Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is set for talks with Tottenham over coaching role before the end of this month to decide his future, with the Ivorian in frame for a full-time coaching role at the club.
The former Man City midfielder has been working at the club’s academy since December to get some experience under his belt as he looks to earn his coaching badges.
And now The 38-year-old, who won three league titles with Manchester City as a player, is set to earn his UEFA A Licence in the next few weeks and is eager to land a job at Spurs or elsewhere, with a view to working his way into a senior position in future.
Toure has been working under the supervision of academy manager Dean Rastrick, head of coaching Chris Powell and coach Stuart Lewis with Spurs finishing ninth out of 14 in the south division.
Negotiations are now set to begin following the conclusion of the Under 18 season with report claiming that Toure has increased his workload in recent months and the club are pleased with his development and could reward him with a full-time contract.
The Ivorian, who hung up his boots in 2020, has previously spent time working with QPR and the FAW, and has held coaching positions at Ukrainian club Olimpik Donetsk and Russian side Akhmat Grozny.
However, with his family located in London, Toure was keen to build his experience closer to them and found Spurs to be accommodating.
The Ivorian midfielder is full of experience having won seven major trophies at Barcelona, including two LaLiga titles and the Champions League, before moving to City in 2010 – where he played 316 times until 2018.
