Just days after his surprising retirement U-turn, former Manchester City and FC Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure has seemingly found a new club, and could soon face a Bafana Bafana international in league action.
Last Friday, Toure's agent Dimitry Seluk announced that his client was retiring from the game and wants to focus on his coaching badges.
However, just two days later, Toure rejected the statement, saying only he will announce when he hangs up his boots.
The Sun has now suggest that the 36-year-old will continue his football in China's second tier, and is believed to be scheduled for a medical at Qingdao Huanghai.

Toure reportedly became a target for the China League One leaders after their captain Juan Verdu picked up an injury, and Huanghai want him to help them gain promotion to the Chinese Super League.
Should the Ivorian join the League One club, he could lock horns with Bafana Bafana striker Dino Ndlovu, who plays for Zhejiang Greentown.
Despite Ndlovu scoring seven goals in nine league appearances this season so far, Greentown are only in seventh place, eight points behind leaders Huanghai.
Toure last featured in an official game on 8 November 2018, for Greek club Olympiacos, but left the team after just three months and has been without a club since.
