Lyon's winger Kader Keita to join Galatasaray

Text by NEWS WIRES

Latest update : 2009-07-02

The Ivorian winger Kader Keita is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Turkish club Galatasaray after two seasons in Lyon.

AFP - Lyon announced on Thursday they have agreed terms with Turkish giants Galatasaray for the transfer of Ivory Coast striker Kader Keita.

The deal leading to a three-year contract for the 27-year-old goal-scorer in Istanbul is expected to be completed later in the day.

Keita joined Lyon from Lille in June 2007 along with midfielder Mathieu Bodmer for a total transfer fee of 24million euros.

He failed, however, to make his mark on the team under coaches Alain Perrin and then last season Claude Puel as Lyon lost the French title they had won for seven straight years.

Galatasary are currently rebuilding under former Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard.
