Kolo TOure
Toure to bid farewell to Liverpool after just one season.

Kolo Toure is poised to leave Liverpool after just one season with Turkish club Trabzonspor confident of securing a deal for the Ivorian.

Toure, 33, became Brendan Rodgers' fourth signing of the summer last year and despite initially being handed a starting role a number of high profile errors saw him lose his place in the team.

After Liverpool conceded the most goals in the top five of the Premier League last season, Rodgers has sought to address those frailties through the signing of Dejan Lovren from Southampton.

Trabzonspor were understood to have approached Liverpool with an offer for Toure earlier in the summer and it would seem the Merseyside club are now open to doing business after the Turkish club's president revealed a deal was close to completion.

"We have agreed terms with Kolo Toure and we will bring him to a club," Trabzonspor president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu told Hurriyet.

Toure made 102 appearances for Manchester City before leaving the club on a free transfer 12 months ago to sign a two year deal at Anfield.

While clubs have approached Liverpool over Toure's services they are yet to be contacted over the services of Daniel Agger. The Dane's role at the club has also come under scrutiny following the arrival of Lovren with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona credited with interest in his services.

And while his manager did not suggest the club would fight to keep the player on Merseyside, Rodgers is unaware of any official interest in Agger as he continues to receive treatment on a troublesome knee injury.

"I've seen some stories on that but, no, we haven't had any enquiries," Rodgers said on Monday.

"Dan's still getting some work done on his knee, he's been a bit unfortunate since America. He's still getting treatment but we haven't had anything, no offers."
