West Ham skipper Lucas Neill looks set to sign with Turkish club Galatasaray.

It is believed that a two-year deal has been agreed upon, with Neill’s salary likely to be around $A7 million per season.

The Socceroos defender recently rejected a new deal from the Hammers believed to be in the vicinity of $60,000 a week.

A source in Turkey says the deal is imminent.

“The fact that Harry Kewell is there and Johan Neeskens (former Australia assistant) also is a big plus for him and quite significant,” the source said.

“Lucas Neill will get a shock at just how big the club is when he arrives here.

“There’s a fan base of over 20 million and they are fanatics. He will be widely appreciated.”
