Dirk Kuyt ends Liverpool spell
Dutch international forward Dirk Kuyt ended a six-year spell with English Premier League side Liverpool yesterday after he agreed to move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce according to media reports.
The 31-year-old — capped over 80 times and a member of the Dutch side beaten in the 2010 World Cup final — reportedly signed a three year contract with the Turkish league runners-up for a fee of 1-million euros.
Fenerbahce, one of the giant Istanbul teams, officially declared the transfer to the Turkish stock exchange, said the private NTV television.
“Kuyt wants to play for Fenerbahce... We signed a three-year contract,” Ali Yildirim, board member of Fenerbahce, was quoted as saying by the Anatolia news agency.
