Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

DEFENDER Kolo Toure has of­fi­cially com­pleted his free trans­fer to Liver­pool.

The cen­tre-back’s deal with Manch­ester City ex­pired in June and the club have con­firmed the 32-year-old sealed the deal on their first day of pre-sea­son train­ing.

An agree­ment had been in place with Toure for some time but he could not sign un­til the open­ing of the trans­fer win­dow.

“This means a lot to me. Firstly, I’m join­ing one of the best clubs in Eng­land,” Toure said.

“When I left City it was im­por­tant for me to stay in Eng­land be­cause it’s the best league – and I chose Liver­pool be­cause of the his­tory and be­cause of the spirit of the team and the peo­ple here.”
