Australia forward Harry Kewell has signed for A-League side Melbourne Victory.

The 32-year-old former Leeds and Liverpool star had been playing for Turkish giants Galatasaray but was apparently keen to ply his trade in his homeland.

After signing a three-year deal to end speculation over where he would move, Kewell said: “I am proud to be Australian and want to give something back to the game there. It has always been my ambition to play in my home country and I am very pleased to have that opportunity by playing for Melbourne Victory.”

Victory chairman Anthony Di Pietro hailed the deal as “the most significant signing in Australian football”.
