Yobo unlikely to be seen again at Everton

Joseph Yobo is not expected to ever return to Everton.

The Liverpool Daily Post says players reported back for pre-season training yesterday - but Joseph Yobo is not expected to return to Finch Farm again.

Goodison officials have refuted suggestions, however, that the Nigerian defender is preparing to boycott EFC pre-season training in a bid to push through his move to Turkish side Fenerbahce.

A report claimed that Yobo was planning to stay away from David Moyes' pre-season preparations and run the risk of a hefty fine, in order to force Everton to accept the offer on the table from the Turks.

But a Goodison spokesman has pointed out that Yobo was not due back on Merseyside until next week and the Blues expect a deal to be completed with Fenerbahce - probably in the region of 4m euros - before then.
