Manchester City defender Kolo Toure heading for Galatasaray


Manchester City defender Kolo Toure was last night in discussions with Galatasaray over a proposed move before the Turkish transfer deadline closes today.

Toure has slipped further out of contention at City following the arrival last Friday of Matija Nastasic from Fiorentina – a deal which saw Stefan Savic move the opposite way. A switch to Istanbul would bring the prospect of a reunion with Toure's former Arsenal team-mate Emmanuel Eboue.
