Yobo leaves Everton for Fenerbahce

Everton defender Joseph Yobo has made his loan stay a permanent one with a move to Fenerbahce for an undisclosed fee on a three year deal. The 31-year-old Nigerian told the Toffees' official website: "I would love to thank Everton and the management of Fenerbahce for reaching a deal.

"My family have settled well in Turkey and enjoy the life there, so I'm glad they will be re-uniting with friends here.

"The permanent switch is done and I am also switching to help the team do well on the pitch.

"It's been a long journey into achieving this dream and now is the time to pay the club and fans back with a great performance."

Nigeria international Yobo made more than 250 appearances for the club, the last of them in a 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw at Stoke in May 2010.
