Everton to accelerate Yobo Fenerbahce sale with Chelsea midfielder Obi Mikel father safe

Everton defender Joseph Yobo is expected to complete his move to Fenerbahce in the coming days.

The deal stalled due to the kidnapping of Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel's father.

Yobo shares the same team of representatives as Obi Mikel, and they were immersed in negotiations with the captors of the Chelsea star's dad, Michael Obi, who was finally released last night 10 days after his abduction in Plateau State, central Nigeria.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton hope to do business with Fener for £2 million-plus.
