Yobo returns to Fenerbahce

BY foxsports • September 6, 2011

Yobo spent last season on loan in Turkey and the Nigerian expressed his desire to make the switch permanent. Fener were keen to keep the player and a new loan deal was completed before the Turkish transfer deadline passed on Monday night. Yobo had looked set to join Fenerbahce at the end of last season but instead returned to Merseyside and reported for pre-season training in July. However, the Nigeria international, whose contract runs until 2014, failed to feature in any of Everton's pre-season fixtures. Yobo has made over 250 appearances during his Everton career after originally joining the club on loan from Marseille back in 2002, but he does not figure in David Moyes' plans.
