Kewell signs with Qatari club

Australian striker Harry Kewell has signed a short-term deal with Qatari club Al Gharafa, securing his first professional deal since leaving A-League side Melbourne Victory a year ago.

Harry Kewell is hoping a short-term deal with Al Gharafa will revive his club and international career
Kewell's club career has been in limbo after he left Melbourne Victory last year

Kewell left Victory at the end of last season and returned to England for family reasons but failed to secure a deal in the Premier League, putting the former Leeds United and Liverpool striker out of contention for the national team..

But the 34-year-old has sealed a temporary move to Al Gharafa and may feature for his new side in Saturday's Qatar Stars League match against Al Sadd.

Although the club's season may be over in a matter of weeks, Kewell is hopeful the stint will provide a more permanent opportunity to revive his club and international career.

He will link up with former Liverpool team-mate Djibril Cisse and Brazilian duo Alex and Nene at Al Gharafa, as well as Socceroos midfielder Mark Bresciano who has been sidelined for the remainder of the season through injury.

Al Gharafa are poised to progress to the next stage of the Asian Champions League, giving Kewell hope of returning to the Australian fold for the World Cup qualifiers against Japan, Iraq and Jordan in June, with the East Asian Cup also a goal.
