Cesare Prandelli has been officially named as Galatasaray's new manager.

The 56-year-old had been out of work since resigning as Italy's coach in the wake of their early World Cup exit.

Meanwhile, Gala had been without a manager following Roberto Mancini's surprise departure last month.

"Galatasaray football team's new coach Cesare Prandelli is coming to Istanbul this evening," read an official statement on the club's website. "Galatasaray will sign the deal tomorrow at 2pm (local time) at the Turk Telekom Arena."

Prandelli had two years remaining on his contract with the Italian national team before he stepped down as coach.
