Ivory Coast striker Abdel Kader Keita has left Lyon for Turkish giants Galatasaray.

He moves for US$12m on a three-year contract.

He had been at Lyon since June 2007, when he moved to the then French champions from Lille in a $24m deal.

Keita played 72 games but did not settle at the club, and last season Lyon lost the league title after winning seven successive championships.

He is moving to join Frank Rijkaard at Galatasaray.

The former Barcelona coach has recently joined the Turkish side and is rebuilding the squad there.
