Official: Australia Captain Lucas Neill Joins Galatasaray From Everton

Australia captain Lucas Neill has officially joined Turkish giants Galatasaray, according to a statement on the club’s official website.

It had recently been reported that Galatasaray had tabled a bid of £800,000 to English Premier League club Everton for Neill’s services, only a few months after he joined the Merseyside club on a free transfer.

According to, Neill has put pen to paper on a one-and-a-half year contract with the Istanbul club though there has been no such announcement on the Everton website.

Neill will link up with fellow Socceroo Harry Kewell and join the likes of Bruce Djite, Mile Jedinak, James Troisi and Michael Petkovic, who are all plying their trade in Turkey.
