Manchester City's Yaya Toure to return for Ivory Coast after call-up

Yaya Toure lifted the African Nations Cup in 2015.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has been named in Ivory Coast's squad for their upcoming African Nations Cup qualifiers against Sudan.

Toure, 32, has not featured for Ivory Coast since helping the team lift the African Nations Cup in February 2015.

But the former Barcelona player, who has 100 caps to his name, is set to return to the international fold for his country's matches against Sudan this month.

"Yaya Toure had requested a break, which was understandable. He had given much to the selection and wished to catch his breath," coach Michel Dussuyer said on the Ivorian Football Federation's official website.

"I think he put that time to good use to relax and set new goals, such as winning a second straight African title and looking to play at the World Cup for a fourth time, which would be exceptional and enrich his already magnificent record."

Bournemouth's Max Gradel has also been named in the 24-man squad, as has Serge Aurier who is currently suspended by his club Paris Saint-Germain after making insulting remarks about coach Laurent Blanc.
