Former Premier League midfielder Yaya Touré is in line to land a full-time coaching role at Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is set for a coaching role with the Premier League side, Tottenham Hotspur.
The ex-Ivory Coast international has been working on his coaching career after he hung his football boots.
Toure is currently attached with Tottenham’s academy as he works on earning his coaching badges.
Daily Mail now reports the Ivorian is set for a sit down with Tottenham chiefs to discuss a possible full-time coaching position at the North London club.
According to reports, the 38-year-old is already aiming for his A license that would allow him to land a full-time coaching job before the end of the month.
The publication claims Tottenham’s decision to reward the Ivorian with a full-time job has been influenced by his increased workload in recent months.
Talks over his deal are scheduled to begin soon after the conclusion of the Under-18 season where he helped Tottenham finish ninth out of 14 in the south division.
At the time, the former Barcelona star worked in a department overseen by academy manager Dean Rastrick.
He also worked closely with Chris Powell but had no direct involvement with his first team.
Meanwhile, Touré has previously been involved in football management with Queens Park Rangers, Ukrainian club Olimpik Donetsk and Russian side Akhmat Grozny.
