Eredivise side Twente sign Iraq skipper Akram

Dutch Eredivise club FC Twente Enschede have signed Iraq national team captain Nashat Akram on a three-year contract.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who already has 75 caps to his name, joins as a free agent from Al-Gharafa of Qatar and will officially become a Twente player after the Confederations Cup in June.

Akram, who had a trial with Manchester City last season, told the Twente website: ''This is a dream come true, to play in Europe. FC Twente is a good club with a big coach.

''I want to develop further at FC Twente and grow together with the club.''

Coach Steve McClaren added: ''We've been following Nashat for a year. He's a young and very talented player, who has bags of experience given his age.''

Akram can look forward to testing himself at the highest level next term after McClaren, in his first season with the club, guided Twente to a place in the qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
