Everton attempting to revive sale talks for Yobo, Yakubu

Everton are attempting to find buyers for Joseph Yobo and Yakubu Aiyegbeni.

The Liverpool Echo says talks between the Blues and Turkish champions Fenerbahce are believed to have resumed after previously stalling, with Everton considering a deal worth less than the £6m price-tag they had initially put on Nigeria's captain.

Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright prides himself on his ability to get a good price for outgoing players, and had believed that Yobo should not go on the cheap, but as the clock ticks down towards the transfer window closing at the end of the month, he is keen to provide David Moyes with some cash to add to his squad via loan deals.

Leicester City, who were rumoured to be mulling over a bid for Yakubu's Goodison team-mate Victor Anichebe, have not given up on trying to sign Yakubu too after he enjoyed a successful loan spell at the King Power stadium last season.
