Liverpool have completed the free transfer signing of defender Kolo Toure.
The experienced centre-back, 32, arrives from Manchester City, having previously spent seven years at Arsenal. He won the Premier League with both clubs.
Upon completing his transfer as the club’s players returned to pre-season training at Melwood today, Toure told the official LFC website:
“I’m joining one of the best clubs in England. When I left City it was important for me to stay in England because it’s the best league – and to join Liverpool is massive for me.
“I chose Liverpool because of the history and because of the spirit of the team and the people here.”
