Kolo Toure linked with Man City exit

Kolo Toure could soon be on his way out of Manchester after reported interest from Bursaspor.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Turkish side are keen on bringing the Ivorian to the Super Lig – a move which has caught the eye of Toure after a lack of first team opportunities last season. The Bursaspor manager, Ertugrul Saglam, has commented and said:

“Obviously nothing is certain until he signs pen to paper, however we are working hard to try to finalise a deal.”

The 28-year-old defender failed to make a big comeback to the Manchester City first team after being suspended for 6 months by the World Anti-Doping Agency after testing positive for a banned substance in March 2011. This meant he missed the end of the 2010/11 season and the beginning of the 2011/12 campaign.

Despite this though, he still managed to contribute enough to get a Premier League winners’ medal on the last day of the season.

Toure signed for the current English champions back in 2009 from fellow top-flight side Arsenal for a fee in the region of £16 million and was immediately made club captain by then manager Mark Hughes.

But now it seems his days at the Etihad are numbered with a deal thought to be worth £6 million edging closer to materialization.
