Comments
The African nation confirmed on Tuesday that they are still waiting on the midfielder, who did not report for international duty

Ivory Coast said they are "without news" after former captain Yaya Toure failed to report for international duty.

Toure stepped away from the national team in September 2016 but the 113-time international made himself available for selection, recalled for a pair of friendlies against Togo and Moldova.

Ivory Coast are scheduled to face Togo on March 24 and Moldova three days later in France.

However, Ivory Coast confirmed on Tuesday that they are still waiting on the 34-year-old Manchester City midfielder.

"The Ivory Coast coaching staff is without news of the Elephants' winning captain of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations," a report read via the Ivorian Football Federation's official website.

Pep Guardiola's City are poised to win the Premier League, though Toure has only made six appearances for the champions-elect.

In total, Toure has featured in 13 matches across all competitions for City this season.
