Galatasaray star Harry Kewell has hinted at a possible return to Australia after commencing the search for a home in Sydney.

The Australia international is reported to be looking for a house in Palm Beach so he can relocate to his homeland.

His contract with his Turkish club is up for renewal shortly and it is believed he is unhappy without his wife, actress Sheree Murphy, and kids by his side.

Kewell was recently in Sydney to have an ongoing groin injury assessed by specialists but took some time to look at properties with Sheree according to a close friend.

"He wants some land for his kids to run about on," a friend of Kewell's said.

"He and Sheree went up to (Palm Beach) and loved it up there. They also had a bit of a look at Seaforth and Castlecrag, and think those areas are beautiful, too."

The friend also said Sheree was keen to continue acting and would love the opportunity to keep working in Australia which also hints a possible return for Kewell.

"She enjoys her work and thinks it would be a dream come true to get a job here doing what she loves, acting," the source said.
