Kolo Toure set for MLS switch?

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure is reportedly set to leave Premier League club for the Major League Soccer in United States, according to The Mirror.

The Ivorian defender, who joined the Reds in August 2013 and has played 44 times for the Merseysiders over the last two seasons, is believed to make a move with MLS franchise New York Red Bulls at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old wanted to secure a two-year deal to extend his stay at Liverpool but the club were not interested in offering him a deal, this has led the defender to look elsewhere with MLS, who are willing to give Toure the two-year contract he desires.

Toure has made just 11 appearances in the Premier League this season, his last performance was against Arsenal in which the Reds suffered a 4-1 loss at the Emirates.

Liverpool are currently sit seven points adrift of the top four with Champions League qualification.

If the deal goes through, Toure will be the second Liverpool player after Steven Gerrard, who will be joining the MLS this summer.
