Former Tottenham player Reto Ziegler has signed for Turkish side Fenerbahce from Juventus until the end of the season.

Juve head coach Antonio Conte has deemed the 27-year-old surplus requirements, despite the player signing a four-year deal at the Turin club in 2011.

Ziegler, who spent three seasons plying his trade at White Hart Lane, played for Fenerbahce for the whole of the last campaign.

He made over 35 appearances for the club before being sent out on a short-term loan deal to Lokomotiv Moscow last summer.

Now the wing-back, who made his name at the Turkish giants after scoring in the derby against Galatasaray in April, will return to the club.

Fenerbahce head coach Aykut Kocaman will welcome Ziegler back to the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium as they look to close a five-point gap at the top of the standings.
