Kolo Toure signs Liverpool extension

The 34-year-old has agreed a new contract, reportedly for one season, while fellow defender Andre Wisdom has also committed himself to the club after a loan spell with West Brom

Liverpool have handed new contracts to Kolo Toure and Andre Wisdom.

The 34-year-old was nearing the end of a two-year contract penned when he joined from Manchester City in 2013 and has now agreed an extension, reportedly for one season.

Toure made 24 appearances in his first year at Anfield before adding a further 21 this campaign following the arrivals of Dejan Lovren and makeshift centre-back Emre Can.

“Liverpool is a great club for me to stay at. Liverpool is going to be massive. I love Premier League football and I played all my years here and if I can finish here it would be great,” Toure recently told reporters.

“My kids go to school here and they are half-English, and that is important as well. I play for Liverpool right now, and I am very happy. If it was to carry on, I’d be more than happy.”

Meanwhile, fellow defender Wisdom has also agreed a contract extension with the club – reportedly running until 2019 – after spending a mixed season on loan at West Brom.
