Liverpool transfer news: Kolo Toure set for £1.5m move to Turkish side Trabzonspor
Ivorian could move to Turkey after just a year at Anfield
Kolo Toure looks set to seal a move to Turkey with Trabzonspor president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu saying terms having been agreed with the defender.
The 33-year-old arrived at Anfield last summer after being released by former club Manchester City.
But after a season in which he played just 24 matches in all competitions, he could be on the move again.
“We are building the type of squad which we promised to the fans,” Haciosmanoglu is quoted as saying.
“We have agreed terms with Kolo Toure and we will bring him to the club.”
Toure begun the season as first-choice but lost his place in November after a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.
For the rest of the season he was in and out of the team but lost his place once and for all after an error at West Brom in February cost Liverpool two points, starting just two matches after that.
With the arrival of Dejan Lovren from Southampton, Toure has been deemed surplus to requirements.
