Lucas Neill is almost certain to leave West Ham after not travelling with the team for their pre-season tour of China.

The Australian international’s contract talks with the Hammers has broken down and a move to Turkish club Galatasaray appears to be close to happening.

Reports out of Turkey suggest that Neill’s manager, Paddy Dominguez, is locked in discussions with Gala’ officials in regards to his client’s wages.

The Turkish club are not prepared to pay the $AUD4.5million per season Neill wants, preferring to look at the $AUD3.5million option instead but it seems a bonus will be set up to counteract this issue.
