Yaya Toure is heading for talks to become a full-time coach at Tottenham Hotspur.

That’s according to a recent report from the Evening Standard, who claims the former Manchester City midfielder is close to completing his UEFA A License.

Currently coaching the Lilywhite’s under-18s, Toure, 38, who made 316 Premier League appearances during an eight-year spell at the Etihad, is thought to be keen to stay on as one of Antonio Conte’s backroom staff.
