Everton hope to sell striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni in the coming weeks.

The Daily Star Sunday says Yakubu, like Fenerbahce target Joseph Yobo, is another Nigerian who is available at Goodison.

Yakubu, 28, could move for £2.5m and has attracted ­interest from Championship clubs West Ham United and Leicester City, where he was on loan last season.

But so far, his ­Everton wages have been a stumbling block to a ­permanent move for the former Portsmouth and Middlesbrough striker.
