YAYA TOURE has opened the door to a sensational move to Celtic.

The former Manchester City midfielder is a free agent after making just five appearances for Olympiakos.

Toure, 35, has spoken of the potential to move to the champions where his brother Kolo, who played for a season at the Hoops, is on Brendan Rodgers’ coaching staff.

He said: “Celtic is a great team. Let me speak with Brendan, then we will see.

“You never know, maybe I could end up in Scotland or England – or maybe France. I want a choice to maybe play one more year at a high level and after that I will decide where I will go.”

The midfield man won three Premier League titles in eight years at City.

He has made 101 appearances for the Ivory Coast over the last 14 years, captaining his country at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

At his peak, Toure was one of the most masterful players in his position and is bound to be snapped up, despite his disappointing spell in Greece.

With Scott Brown’s future uncertain, the African could become a key member of Rodgers’ first team squad.
