Everton's Yobo wants Fenerbahce move: Turkish league BETTER than Premier League

Everton defender Joseph Yobo rates the Turkish league as superior to the Premier League.

And the Nigeria international is hopeful of signing permanently for Fenerbahce.

"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."
