The French forward featured for Sutton United and AFC Fylde in the National League last season, scoring seven goals in 41 appearances. 

The 25-year-old joins Nicke Kabamba, Michael Raynes, Ben Killip and Luke Molyneux as a new arrival at Pools this summer. 

Toure scored for Sutton in a 2-2 draw against Hartlepool in March with manager Craig Hignett identifying the powerful striker as a summer target to help bolster his side’s front-line.

Hignett was desperate to bring in another striker at the Super 6 Stadium to compete with Nicke Kabamba and Toure looks to be that man. 

He will join up with the rest of his new Pools teammates when the squad returns for pre-season training on Monday.
