Lucas Neill signs for Galatasaray

Galatasaray has transferred defender Lucas Neill of Everton for a reported 800,000 British pounds, according to the Telegraph newspaper. After the transfer, Galatasaray signed Neill to a 1.5 year contract. He has previously played for Everton, West Ham United, and Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League. Generally a right back, he has been playing center back in recent games for Everton. He joins fellow Australian Harry Kewell on the team. Most likely, he will feature at center back for Galatasaray the rest of the season, due to Sabri Sarioglu being the first choice right back. Galatasaray is also rumored to be interested in Roman Pavyluchenko of Tottenham Hotspur, but may not be able to meet the transfer price to sign him. Galatasaray is also rumored to be after Mido, the Egyptian forward currently playing on loan for Middlesbrough.
