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.

Look at the galatasaray.org page.

...just look at the vids!

It says on the Harry Kewell wikipedia page that it is official.   0_0
On the Galatasaray wikipedia page he is listed as having the number 7 shirt.

I hope it aint true...but...it has been on their club tv channel.  *goes off to be angsty*

SOCCEROOS captain Harry Kewell spent this weekend holidaying in California and contemplating contract offers from clubs in England, Italy, Turkey, Greece and Russia.

Yet, as Kewell readily admits, his future would offer less exotic options if not for the work of Australian physiotherapist Les Gelis, who nursed the former Liverpool player back to fitness after four years of injury hell.

Club before Olympics, says Kewell

Australia's ex-Liverpool star Harry Kewell says he is keen to play at the Beijing Olympics but stressed his priority was securing a new club contract.

The injury-hit midfielder has been linked with Italy's AS Roma and Valencia after his Liverpool contract expired and has also been suggested as one of Australia's three over-age players for Beijing.

Kewell was the only established player in the team of Beijing-bound under-23 squad members which lost 1-0 to China in Sunday's dead rubber World Cup qualifying match.

Roma could be ready to sign two Liverpool players with John Arne Riise closing in on a switch to Stadio Olimpico and out-of-contract Harry Kewell also emerging as a possible target.... 

With doubts remaining over Alessandro Mancini's future, Kewell's name has also cropped up at Roma as the Australia winger seeks a new club...

The ex-Leeds United star is keeping his options open but a transfer to Italy could appeal if the right move in Britain fails to materialise, maybe even linking up with Riise down the left flank.

The Socceroos are through to the next stage of World Cup qualification!

Australia 3 Qatar 1

Two goals by Brett Emerton and a goal by Harry Kewell saw them through (though Harry had another goal but it was disallowed for some really crazy unknown reason.)

There is a rumour that there were scouts from two Spanish clubs in the crowd watching Harry...one of them is believed to be Valencia.  Though some people have been saying it was AS Roma scouts.  So let's just be vague and say there were scouts there.

See some more Harry pics here:
