Toure, 32, has signed a two-year contract after completing a medical and agreeing personal terms with the club.
Liverpool Football Club can today announce they have agreed a deal in principal with Kolo Toure to join the club on July 1.
The powerful defender will be registered as a Reds player when his current deal with Manchester City expires.
The statement also points out that Toure will become first Ivorian to play for Liverpool.
Toure isn’t expected to be a first-choice partner for Daniel Agger, but will add some depth and experience in the central defence position, with question marks over the futures of Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates.
Welcome to Liverpool, Kolo!
