Yobo transfer wrangle goes on

The 30-year-old Nigeria international defender spent last season on

loan in Turkey, and is hoping to stay there. However, the Toffees

are haggling over the fee as they believe they had agreed a

6million euros figure – only for Fenerbahce to offer around half

that amount. Now Yobo’s former Super Eagles team-mate Okechukwu

Uche, who also spent several seasons at Fener, has called on both

clubs to sort out the move. “Joseph is not having a good holiday as

his future remain unresolved,” said Uche. “He had a wonderful

season at Fenerbahçe, the management and fans would love for

him to stay at the club and that is key. “I hope both clubs can

just consider the player’s desire, ambition and happiness as only a

happy man will give his best on the pitch. “We’ve heard other clubs

are also interested in Yobo, who haven’t made official bids yet but

the player has repeatedly stated his desire to play on at

Fenerbahce.” Everton could be willing to deal at around 4million

euros but until then, Yobo is having to sit tight.
