Australian to link up with compatriots at Turkish giants

Blackburn Rovers have reached an agreement with Turkish side Galatasaray over the sale of Vince Grella.

According to reports in the Lancashire Telegraph, Rovers have accepted an offer for the midfielder in the region of £2 million and have given Galatasaray permission to open talks with the Australian.

Grella himself has declined to comment publicly on the situation as he prepares for Australia's World Cup campaign in South Africa, but is believed to be keen on ending his Premier League nightmare.

Aussie team-mates Harry Kewell and Lucas Neill are already playing for the Turkish outfit and are understood to have persuaded Grella to join them, just two years on from moving to Rovers from Torino.

Grella was signed by former Rovers boss Paul Ince in the summer of 2008 but has struggled to make an impact in England due to a series of injuries.
