Official: Touré Signs For City



Manchester City have announced the signing of Kolo Toure from Arsenal on a four-year contract.

Hughes expressed his delight at the capture of the Côte d'Ivoire international, stating: 'I am delighted to welcome Kolo to Manchester City.

'It is no secret that we have been looking to strengthen our defence, and in Kolo I feel we have recruited a world class player. He brings a wealth of Premier League experience from his seven seasons with Arsenal.

'Kolo has been a central figure in a very strong Arsenal team for many years, and I have been an admirer of him for a long time.

'He is strong, quick, reads the game well and will be an influential figure in the dressing room.'

Kolo had reportedly handed in a transfer request which was later turned down by Arsenal's chairman last season, and he now joins former team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor at Eastlands as Mark Hughes continues to turn Manchester City into a top-four challenging force.

The experienced 28-year-old defender is reported to have joined City from Arsenal in a deal worth around £15m. His number has not yet been confirmed.

This could turn out to be the most important of all Hughes's big-name signings. I can see Toure form a solid centreback partnership with Dunne and Onuoha in the senior squad. Finally, we have strength in depth for speciality centre backs... Now perhaps City can work on stopping so many goals against.

i agree sindbad,the defensive side have let us down over the past couple of years but we will look solid if we get lescott in aswell.
