Kolo Toure will sign a two-year deal with Liverpool today following his release from Manchester City, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The official Liverpool website has confirmed the 32-year-old is at the club's Melwood training base to finalise his move, with the Ivorian due to take part in training and fitness tests later in the day.

Toure comes to the club with significant pedigree, having been a Premier League title winner with Arsenal and City during his time in England.

During seven seasons at the Gunners he also won the FA Cup twice and was part of the historic 'Invincibles' squad that remained unbeaten during the victorious 2003/04 season.

In 2009 Toure joined City in a £14m move and went on to make 102 appearances for the club, before being deemed surplus to requirements at the end of last season.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has moved quickly to fill the void left by Jamie Carragher, who retired at the end of last season, by bringing in the experienced Ivory Coast international.

Rodgers will now hope the addition of Toure - one of four new faces at Anfield - will boost his side's hopes of Champions League qualification this season after finishing well short of fourth-place Arsenal last term.
