City midfielder Gareth Barry is convinced the veteran defender will prove his worth at Anfield.
"Kolo will be a great signing. I think it's an astute signing by Brendan Rodgers because he has got so much experience," Barry said.
"He will always give 100 per cent, he will never give up. Kolo will win over the fans straight away.
"But Kolo, with his experience and his work-rate, the way he goes about his training, will do a good job of replacing him."
