Liverpool fans are breathing a sigh of relief here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claimed the Reds were all set to wave goodbye to Kolo Toure.
As one of our punters notes, Toure has hardly been a rock for the Merseyside club and we are pretty sure no one will be missing him too much as he heads over to Turkey to begin a new chapter in his footballing career after a £1.6 million fee was agreed for the player.
Over a game of pool, our landlord makes the quip that we expected a Toure to be departing our shores this summer, but we had our money on it being cake loving, birthday party craving Yaya, not his brother.
There is also some uncertainty over the future of defender Daniel Agger and we think that there will be a fair few changes at Anfield yet before the summer is out with a forward and another ‘big name’ player reportedly on manager Brendan Rodger’s agenda.
Liverpool fans. Do you think that Toure will be a success at Trabzonspor or will his defensive mishaps crop up once again? Let us know your thoughts below.
