Fenerbache sign Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt

The Dutch attacker, who made 285 appearances for the Reds since his 2006 move, has moved to the Turkish giants for a fee of £800,000 and penned a contract until lasting 2015



Fenerbache have announced the signing of Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt on a three-year deal.
The 31-year-old Netherlands international is thought to have cost the Turkish giants just €1million (£800,000), due to a clause in his contract concerning European clubs.

Kuyt arrived at Liverpool in 2006 for a fee of around £9m, winning one trophy in his time on Anfield - the League Cup in February 2012 - and quickly gained praise for his hold-up play.
But, under Kenny Dalglish's 18-month reign most recently, the forward has found first-team opportunities hard to come by, with the signings of Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and midfielders Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson forcing the attacker out wide, often having to settle for a place on the substitutes bench.
Kuyt racked up 275 appearances during his time in England, netting 71 goals in the process.
The forward has been capped 85 for the Netherlands, and will be representing his country at Euro 2012.
