The 35 year old Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure  has joined   the Athens' club Olympiacos on a free transfer.



Toure, who left the club for Monaco in 2006 said it is an honour to be back at the club.

It will be recalled that since the end of last season that he left Manchester city he has been a free player and last week his agent said he has passed medical in a club in Europe.

He wrote "I had offers from lots of clubs across Europe, Asia and the USA. Ultimately, I made my decision based on the special relationship I have with this incredible club. 

"I am as hungry for success now as I was when I first arrived here many years ago and I cannot wait to help the club win the trophies the great fans of Olympiacos deserve. 

"It is now time to let my football do the talking once again."

It is expected that the ace defensive midfielder will secure a regular playing time in Olympiacos.
