Manuel Pellegrini has ruled out a move for free agent Yaya Toure, and said his squad is “complete.”
“Yaya Toure is a good player, he will always be a good player, but for the moment he is not for West Ham,” Pellegrini said. “For the moment, the squad is complete.”
Toure scored 20 goals in the Premier League as City claimed the 2013-14 title under Pellegrini, and the pair spent three seasons together at the Etihad.
The former Ivory Coast international then saw his first team opportunities limited once Pellegrini was replaced by Pep Guardiola in 2016, and last season made just 10 league appearances.
West Ham have been busy in the transfer market this summer, strengthening particularly in central midfield with the additions of Jack Wilshere, Sebastian Nebyala and Carlos Sanchez. However, they began their Premier League campaign with a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.
