Australian Football: Toure set to leave Reds

Carl Veart has revealed Mohamed Toure could have played his last game for Adelaide United after agreeing a move to another club.

Adelaide are priced at 10/1 to win the A-League grand final this season but they could have to do without Toure, who has picked up an injured shoulder.

Out for the season

Toure damaged his shoulder in the recent game against Melbourne Victory and sat out the action on Friday night as the Reds picked up a crucial 1-0 win over Macarthur.

Speaking after the game Veart confirmed that surgery is an option. Either way he is unlikely to play again this season.

Veart also confirmed that Toure has agreed a deal elsewhere for next season. The club has not been named but Veart says he has probably pulled on the Adelaide jersey for the last time.

Moving on

"We're still weighing up whether he's going to have surgery or not," Veart said. "If he has surgery, he's gone for the whole season, but if he doesn't, it's still six-to-eight weeks.

"It's quite a bad injury, so he'll maybe have another chat with the surgeon. The surgeon has recommended surgery, it's just a matter of whether we go down that path or not.

"That's something that Mo has to work out and, also, there's no secret Mo is moving on next year, so I'm sure the club he's moving to will want to have a say in that as well."

The win over Macarthur moved Adelaide back up to fourth and their finals destiny remains in their own hands.
