Harry Kewell has signed a two-year contract with Galatasaray after passing a medical with the Turkish champions.
The Australian winger was available on a free transfer after leaving Liverpool following five injury-hit seasons at Anfield.
Galatasaray had announced a deal for Kewell on Thursday night, and the 29-year-old has now officially completed his move.
Speaking at a news conference in Istanbul, Kewell is confident he has made the right choice for his career.
"I wanted to move on and I think this is the best way to move on," Kewell, who was sent off against his new club during his time at Leeds United, told reporters.
Thrilled to bits
Kewell, who had also been linked with Celtic, Portsmouth and Roma, had earlier revealed he was relishing the opportunity to play for Galatasaray after arriving in Turkey for talks.
"I'm excited, I'm thrilled to bits," Kewell told the club's official website. "I'm looking forward to the new challenge.
"I can't wait to meet up with the team and to get going. It's something different.
"There's a lot of talk about the Turkish league. It's coming up in the world and the national team has done well in the last couple of major tournaments.
"There's a lot of young talent here, and it's different, that's what I'm looking forward to - a new challenge."
