Emre leaves Newcastle

July 23, 2008 17:50 IST

Turkish midfielder Emre Belozoglu signed for Fenerbahce from Newcastle United on Wednesday in a four-year deal, the club announced at a signing ceremony.

The 27-year-old Emre, the captain of the Turkey national side which reached the semi-finals of Euro 2008, launched his career with Fenerbahce's Istanbul rivals Galatasaray.

He had a four-year spell at Inter Milan before joining Newcastle in 2005.

"For many years I have tried to represent Turkish football in Europe. I am very happy to have come to Fenerbahce and I hope I will serve this club for years," Emre told reporters.
