Kolo Toure completes switch from Manchester City to Liverpool

Kolo Toure will officially become a Liverpool player on July 1 after he completed a medical ahead of his move to Anfield.

Liverpool have agreed in principle a two-year deal with Toure, who has taken a drop in the £90,000 a week salary he was being paid by Manchester City.

His contract expires on June 30 and the formalities of the free transfer will be completed then.

Brendan Rodgers is anxious to bolster Liverpool’s defence in the wake of Jamie Carragher’s retirement and while Toure does not fit the profile of players who Liverpool sign under Fenway Sports Group, the 32-year-old will provide experienced cover.

Liverpool's need for fresh faces at the back is further accentuated by Skrtel's uncertain future at the club.
