Joseph Yobo completes move from Everton to Fenerbahce

Joseph Yobo has completed his permanent move to Fenerbahce from Everton for a fee of around 1.9 million pounds.

The 31-year-old defender signed a three-year contract with the Turkish giants after spending the last two seasons on loan at the club.

The Nigeria captain is also expected to earn 1.5 million pounds per year.

Yobo lost his place at the heart of David Moyes' back four after Johnny Heitinga and Sylvain Distin arrived at Goodison Park.

The former Marseille defender was expected to complete his move last week but talks broke down over additional demands made by the Toffees, regarding a bonus payment related to European appearances made by the Nigerian.

Yobo made over 250 appearances for the Merseyside club since arriving from Ligue 1 in 2002.
