Fernando Meira joins Galatasaray

Portuguese defender Fernando Meira has completed his move to Turkish side Galatasaray from Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart.

The departure of the former club captain had been long expected following his announcement that he was seeking a new challenge elsewhere and the arrival this week of Khalid Boulahrouz from Chelsea.

Meira had been linked with both Liverpool and Chelsea, but Turkish giants Galatasaray have clinched his signature on a three year contract

Stuttgart manager Horst Heldt has however paid tribute to Meira for the six-and-a-half seasons he has spent at the Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion.

"We thank Fernando Meira for six-and-a-half years in the jersey of VfB and wish him all the best for his future in Turkey."

It was Meira who captained the Swabians to the Bundesliga title in 2007.
