Yaya Toure left Manchester City at the expiration of his contract back in June, thus bringing the curtain down on a hugely successful eight-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.
The midfielder won three Premier League title during his time in the North West and played an integral part in the first two successes, as well as helping the Citizens to two League Cup crowns, and indeed the FA Cup title back in 2011.
Yes, there will be concerns that the Ivorian is 35 now and is likely well past his best, but having excelled for City in the 2016/17 season, the midfielder may still have some time left at the top level, and in a Newcastle side lacking experience and nous, he could be a huge asset.
