Kolo Toure.
Kolo Toure.

Liverpool FC has confirmed the free- signing of Ivoirian defender Kolo Toure from Manchester City. Toure has always reiterated his desire to remain in England, and having grown frustrated with the lack of opportunities at the Etihad Stadium a move to Anfield has been agreed in principle for the free- agent.

The deal was confirmed in a statement released on www.liverpoolfc.com that “Liverpool Football Club can today (Tuesday) announce they have agreed a deal in principle with Kolo Toure to join the club on July 1.”

Toure’s previous contract with Manchester City expires next month, from which moment the Reds will register him as the first Ivoirian to play for the club.

The 32- year- old, though not in the age bracket of players Liverpool sign under their American owners Fenway Sports Group, the statement also revealed that his experience will be useful in the club’s dressing room.

With Jamie Carragher now retired and the long- term futures of both Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates in doubt, manager Brendan Rodgers has been keen to tie up a deal for an experienced player for the heart of his defence.
