Everton chairman Bill Kenwright expects Joseph Yobo's proposed switch to Fenerbahce to be completed in the next few days.
The 30-year-old centre-back spent last season on loan at the Turkish club and has expressed his desire to make the switch permanent.
Everton are holding out for a fee of £6million for the experienced Nigeria international, who was David Moyes' first signing at Goodison Park, but Fener have reportedly only bid half of that amount.
Kenwright, however, still believes an agreement is imminent, telling the Turkish press: "I think a result can be achieved in a few days. I have had no other bids."
Yobo helped Fenerbahce to the title last season, scoring the goal that clinched the championship during a dramatic last day decider against Sivasspor.
