  • Wesley Sneijder: Netherlands midfielder joins Al-Gharafa in Qatar

The news of his transfer was broken on the official handle of Al Gharafa which read, "Breaking: We are delighted to announce that Wesley Sneijder will join Al Gharafa Sports Club".

UEFA Champions League winner Wesley Sneijder is headed for the Middle East to team up with Qatar's Al-Gharafa after his misadventure at Ligue 1 side OGC Nice.

Sneijder, a 33-year-old attacking midfielder, underwent a medical examination in Doha and is expected to be presented to the media in the coming days.

He accepted an 18-month deal with the club who announced their high profile new signing on Twitter.

He has won league titles in his native Holland as well as Italy and Spain, while also helping Inter win the Champions League in 2010.

"It's a nice adventure and a fun challenge".

"I am really happy to go for it together with my family". "He will have a positive impact on our young players, especially in commitment outside and inside the stadium", he added.

The league's best known player is former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez, who plays for Al Sadd but is likely to retire at the end of the season.
