Cana leaves Sunderland for Galatasaray
Sunderland says Albania midfielder Lorik Cana has left the club
to join Turkish side Galatasaray.
The English Premier League club says it has agreed a fee in
excess of 6 million euros (5 million pounds) with Galatasaray for
the 26-year-old Cana, who captained Sunderland last season.
Cana made 35 appearances for Sunderland, which he joined last
summer from French club Marseille.
Cana told Sunderland’s website Thursday that he saw the move as
a chance to be “closer to my family,” adding that he was also
tempted by the opportunity to play in the Champions League with
Galatasaray next season.
