Liverpool defender edges closer to Turkish league switch

Liverpool’s Kolo Toure is edging closer to a move to join Trabzonspor for a reported £1.5 million after a statement was released by the club, according to Daily Mail.

The Turkish side’s president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu said: “We have agreed terms with Kolo Toure and we will bring him to the club.”

Although he played in a recent pre-season friendly for his team, the 33-year-old Ivorian was offered a two year deal with wages of £40,000 after paying taxes.

Toure still has one year remaining on his current deal at Anfield, but with the recent addition of Dejan Lovren from Southampton, it is likely that Brendan Rodgers will look to sell him.

He only made 20 appearances last season, failing to make any big impact as he saw first team chances hard to come by and is now behind the likes of Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Agger, and Lovren in the pecking order.
