Defender Toure, 28, signs a three-year contract with Trabzonspor from French side Lorient, with the aim of returning to the Senegalese national side.

"I want to play in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. 

Therefore, one of my reasons for coming here is to develop myself and return to the national team," said Toure, who has the option to extend for an additional year. 

He began his professional career at Boulogne in 2008, before stints at Le Havre where he then earned a move to Lorient in August 2015.

Toure represented Senegal at U-23 level before making his debut for the Teranga Lions against Ivory Coast in October 2012.

Capped 13 times, his last game for the West Africans was the third Group A match against Algeria at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
