Liverpool fans react to Kolo Toure arrival

As we reported earlier, Ivorian international defender Kolo Toure finalised his move to Liverpool today, signing a two-year deal.

The 32-year old comes in from Manchester City on a free transfer due to his contract at the Ethiad Stadium having expired.

The former Arsenal Premier League winner will be seen as an experienced replacement for veteran defender Jamie Carragher, who retired at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

He joins the likes of Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Sebasitan Coates and Martin Kelly in fighting for a first team place at centre-back.

He was officially revealed to the press today via the club’s official website and obligatory photo shoot next to various signs and benches at Melwood.

Former Man City team mate Vincent Kompany tweeted:

We took to Twitter to ask Reds fans for their reaction to Toure signing for the Reds:

Meanwhile, plenty of fans were tweeting the LFC cameraman’s apparent obsession with having new signings pictured learning on things!
