Kolo Toure has signed a one-year contract extension with Liverpool Football Club.
Toure showed every bit of his age of 34 at times during his first year with the Reds but Brendan Rodgers must see the appeal in keeping the veteran around as a backup for next season. Considering how poorly Liverpool looked defensively in their final two games, there should be plenty of competition for a spot in next year's back line. However, it would likely take an injury to someone else for Kolo to return to regular playing time at this stage. May 26 - 1:11 PM

Brendan Rodgers has reported that "Kolo is with our physiologists and is working well. He should be available for Monday."

What role Toure will play remains to be seen. If he is ready to start the match, he could be an option on the right as cover for the injured Glen Johnson.

Kolo Toure was stretchered off the pitch ten minutes into extra time of Liverpool's League Cup match against Notts County.

At the time it was tied 2-2, but Daniel Sturridge scored his second goal soon after to make it 3-2. Liverpool will go into this weekend's match against Manchester United with only Daniel Agger and Andre Wisdom as recognized center backs.

Kolo Toure signed a contract today with Liverpool, finalized a long-known about transfer.

Toure will bring experience and depth to the Liverpool defence. He started more games than expected last season for Manchester City after leap-frogging Joleon Lescott in the pecking order, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him line-up alongside Daniel Agger at the start of this season. However, he's not a long-term answer at the position.

In a widely reported move, Kolo Toure will join Liverpool when his contract with Manchester City expires on July 1.

Toure will add depth and experience to a Liverpool defence that lost Jamie Carragher to retirement, and may have Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates move on this summer.

Kolo Toure, who is out-of-contract next month, looks set for a move to Liverpool. He will have a medical with the club after he returns from Manchester City's United States tour.

Liverpool need to replace the retiring Jamie Carragher, and don't seem to trust their other center back options. Toure surely isn't in-line for a long-term role, but will give them depth and experience in Carragher's absence.
