Liverpool centre-back Kolo Toure has spoken about his future plans. Kolo is keen to sign a contract extension to stay at the Anfield for the upcoming season. The 35-year-old Ivorian had a renaissance under his German boss Jurgen Klopp, and with his contract expiring in June, the defender wants to carry on with Liverpool.

After completing a move to Merseyside in 2013, Kolo gave some average performances, but since the appointment of Klopp, he has been exceptional. The experienced defender replaced Mamadou Sakho, who is facing a one and a half months ban following a drug test failure, in last night’s Europa League final against Sevilla and he was the best Liverpool player, although the Merseyside reds lost that night. But Liverpool still wants to secure the future as they have agreed on terms with the Cameroon international Joel Matip to replace the Ivorian.

Toure is optimistic and hopes that Liverpool will offer him a contract extension of one year, he thinks he still has plenty to offer to the club.

In an interview with Sky, while asked about his future plans, Toure said:

‘I don’t know, to be honest,’

‘I am just enjoying my time at the club – a fantastic club and fantastic supporters. We will see what will happen and you will have to ask that question to the manager.

‘Of course, I want to stay. It’s a great club to play in, but the manager has his plan and any decision I will respect. He is a top manager and he knows what he is doing.’
