The former Arsenal star has insisted that he is to stay at the club and win a regular starting spot, claiming that he is up for the challenge.
Trabzonspor agreed a fee with last season’s Premier League runners up but Toure rejected the move as he feels he is still up to the task of fighting his way into the Reds’ first team.
“I am still at Liverpool. I had talks with the coach who clearly indicated that I was part of his plans,” he said.
“It is a privilege to be at Liverpool. I am very happy to wear the shirt of this legendary club.
“I feel good physically. At 33 years of age, I am ready for any challenge. It is because I have been spared from serious injuries during my career.
“I continue to work hard in training to keep up the momentum, and it is why the coach wants to keep me at Liverpool.
“Trabzonspor are interested in me, but I have expressed my pleasure at being a Liverpool player.
“Yes, it is always a possibility to join a lower league for more playing time, but I am a competitor and I decided to stay at Liverpool.
“However, the situation can change at any time, but for the moment I am at Liverpool and I want to carry on with the club.”
