Sydney FC rubbish talks of Kewell purchase

A-League club Sydney FC have poured cold water on rumours linking them with Australian national team star Harry Kewell. Reports suggest that the 32-year old, whose current contract with Turkish club Galatasaray expires in May, is set to return to his home city and continue his career in Australia's domestic competition.

It was believed that the former Leeds United and Liverpool wingers' agent, Bernie Mandic, was putting his client forward to clubs in Australia.

But Sky Blues CEO Stefan Kamasz has come out and said that talk is nonsense.

"If we were interested in Harry, and of course what Australian club would not be at the right price, then we would have approached Bernie Mandic," Kamasaz told The World Game.

"We have not done that, nor has Bernie come to us trying to flog Harry. So that is where things stand.

"I was not even aware that Harry was prepared to come back to the A-League and I have no idea what his price tag would be."

But Kamasz made it clear that the two-time A-League champions were still very much on the lookout for a big name player.

"That is not to say we are not looking at bringing a star name to the club. We have a list of players and we are keen to bring back the glamour to Sydney FC," he added.
