Yaya Toure has reportedly held talks with newly-promoted side Cadiz.


According to BBC Sport as reported by the Daily Mail, the the former Ivory Coast international could make a shock return to the Spanish LaLiga.


The 37-year-old has been without a club since leaving Chinese Super League side Qingdao Huanghai at the start of the year and despite reported interest from Brazil, he remains a free agent.


Toure trained with League Two side Leyton Orient for two weeks in late July in a bid to retain his fitness levels with the hope of furthering his playing career before moving into coaching.


The former Manchester City midfielder enjoyed three successful years at Barcelona where he won seven major honours including the 2009 UEFA Champions League.


Capped 97 times by his country, Toure led the Elephants to 2015 Africa Cup of Nations glory and is considered to be amongst the best African footballers of all time.


Cadiz, who won promotion to LaLiga last season, currently occupy ninth spot in Spain’s top-flight.
