Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure has not ruled out a return to the English Premier League following a failed stint back in Greece.

The 35-year-old is a free agent after mutually parting company with Olympiacos in December, a few months after rejoining the club following eight successful years at current English Premier League champions Manchester City.

Reports have linked Tours with a move to Scottish champions Celtic, the MLS and China, but the former Barcelona-man isn't ruling out a return to England's top-flight having previously been linked with a move to West Ham United.

"This is definitely not the end, I want to continue to play," Toure told Sky Sports.

"I went to Olympiacos and I quit because I was not so happy, the mentality was very different. It was a bad choice.

"Maybe it was an emotional choice because I started there and wanted to give something back to the fans.

"I'm well-known in the world and wanted to give something back, but when I got there it was not what I was expecting."

Toure continued: "You never know, maybe the Premier League!

"If it is possible I want to play one or two more years, we will see."
