Galatasaray part company with Baros



Czech Republic striker Milan Baros, 31, has left Turkish giants Galatasaray by mutual consent, it was announced on Wednesday.

"The two parties have reached the best solution in the current situation," Baros' agent Pavel Paska wrote on the player's website.

"Now we can sit down with Milan and consider his footballing future."

Press reports in Prague say that the player's options include a return to Czech club Banik Ostrava, where he started his career, or a move to Russia or Qatar.

Baros joined Istanbul club Galatasaray in 2008 and was the Turkish league's leading scorer in his debut season.

He rose to prominence at Euro 2004, a tournament which he finished as the top scorer, and has also played for Liverpool, Aston Villa and Lyon.

The announcement of his departure from Galatasaray, who currently top the Turkish league, comes after the club recruited former Chelsea star Didier Drogba on an 18-month contract.
