Joseph Yobo: The former Everton man has won the league and the Turkish cup in his two years at Fenerbahce
Joseph Yobo is delighted to have earned a 'dream' move to Fenerbahce after Everton agreed to sell him to the Turkish club.
The 31-year-old Nigerian defender has been rewarded for two successful loan spells at Fenerbahce with a three-year deal after the two clubs agreed on a price to end the defender's decade-long association with Everton.
And Yobo, who still had two years left on his contract, has vowed to repay the club chiefs for their support by wowing the fans on the pitch.
"I would love to thank Everton and the management of Fenerbahce for reaching a deal," Yobo told the club's official website.
"My family have settled well in Turkey and enjoy the life there, so I'm glad they will be reuniting with friends here.
"The permanent switch is done and I am also switching to help the team do well on the pitch.
"It's been a long journey into achieving this dream and now is the time to pay the club and fans back with a great performance."
