Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce they have completed the signing of Kolo Toure.

The powerful defender put pen to paper on a contract with the Reds at Melwood on Tuesday to finalise his move from Manchester City.

Toure is Liverpool's forth signing of the summer so far, following Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Simon Mignolet.

The 32-year-old becomes the first Ivorian to represent the club.

Toure told "This means a lot to me. Firstly, 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."
