Joseph Yobo move from Everton to Fenerbahce made permanent

Joseph Yobo has completed his transfer from Everton to Fenerbahce.

The defender joins the Turkish side for an undisclosed fee having helped them to the league title and the Turkish Cup during a two-year loan spell.

The Nigerian international was David Moyes' first signing when he joined from Marseilles on loan in 2002, making the move permanent a year later.

"I would love to thank Everton and the management of Fenerbahce for reaching a deal," the 31-year-old said on Sunday.

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

Yobo made more than 250 appearances for Everton, helping them qualify for the Champions League in 2005 and playing in the side that lost the 2009 FA Cup final to Chelsea.
