Kewell hoping for good injury news to stay with Galatasaray

Harry Kewell is in danger of being forced out of Turkish club Galatasaray according to reports. With the news that the club has signed Mexico international Giovani dos Santos on loan from Tottenham, Kewell is now one of nine foreigners on the books (along with fellow Aussie Lucas Neill) at Gala' and reports suggest he could be on the outer as he continues to struggle with a groin injury.

Although Kewell's performances have been no less than stellar for the club, there is danger that he may have to move on but injury concerns may be allayed early next week when he sees specialists in Sydney.

"He is seeing a variety of specialists, as Harry usually does, and he will be guided by their medical opinion," said Kewell's agent Bernie Mandic.

"We should know by Monday what the prognosis is."

Kewell will be hoping for good news as 2010 is an extremely important year not only for him but also for the Australian national team as they prepare for the World Cup which kicks off in June along with Galatasaray who remain in the UEFA Cup competition and are a good chance to win the Turkish title.

"This is an important year. Apart from the forthcoming World Cup, Galatasaray are still heavily involved in the battle for the Turkish Championship and are also seeking a spot in the next UEFA Champions League," Mandic added.

"So it is very important that Harry gets it right with regard to his injury."
