Everton's Yobo to make permanent Fenerbahce switch

Joseph Yobo suggests that he will soon be making a permanent move from Everton to Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The 31-year old Nigerian defender has spent the past two seasons on loan in Istanbul and is looking forward to making the move non-temporary after experiencing plenty of success at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.

"Moving to Fenerbahce was the best thing in my career," Yobo told the Liverpool Echo.

"I joined them because I was eager to win silverware. The 2011 Super Lig title and the Turkish Cup justified that. I hope my permanent move to Fenerbahce is concluded soon."

He added: "The Turkish league is more technical than the Premier League. The Premier League is more physical and most popular in the world, but after playing for seven years in England, I think the Turkish league is of a better quality."
