Former Liverpool attacker Harry Kewell has snubbed Roma’s advances in order to sign for Galatasaray.
The Turkish champions announced the Australian’s signing on their official website, just hours after the Italian press claimed Kewell was on his way to Serie A.
Galatasaray confirmed the 29-year-old has penned a three-year contract, marking an end to his turbulent spell in England’s Premier League.
Earmarked as one of Europe's brightest young talents as a Leeds youngster, Kewell earned the admiration of virtually every top club in Europe as Leeds reached the Champions League semi-finals.
However, the Elland Road club’s financial collapse meant Kewell joined boyhood club Liverpool for a mere £5 million, sparking controversy over how much was paid to his agent.
Donning the famous number seven jersey, Kewell’s time was largely cursed, with injury forcing him to limp out of Champions League and FA Cup finals.
His defining moment in a Red jersey was surely the cross to Florent Sinama-Pongolle that sparked Liverpool’s comeback against Olympiakos – which sent them on their way to the European Cup final.
Kewell limped off in that Istanbul final, but he will now hope for happier memories at his new home.
