Marseille president Eyraud responds to Toure rumours

Olympique Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud admits a move for Yaya Toure is unlikely.

After losing Frank Zambo Anguissa to Fulham, OM are in the market a new midfield addition and Toure is under consideration after his release by Manchester City.

And Eyraud told L'Equipe: "Since the departure of Anguissa, we are working on players in this sector, yes.

"We're looking at players of profiles of different natures: more experienced, some younger. It cannot be Yaya Toure? No."

Toure will have to accept a major pay-cut for a move to OM to happen.
