Everton defender Yobo set for Fenerbahce loan

Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo is set to join Turkish club

Fenerbahce on a season-long loan deal from Everton, with a view to

a permanent transfer.

Everton says the move is subject to the 29-year-old defender

agreeing personal terms and passing a medical examination before

the transfer window closes in Turkey on Wednesday.

Yobo, who joined Everton from Marseille in 2002, has lost his

first-team place at the Premier League club, with manager David

Moyes preferring Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin at center

back.
