Rustu Recber has brought an end to his Barcelona nightmare by returning to former club Fenerbahce on loan.

The Turkish international custodian has endured a miserable time at Camp Nou since arriving on a free transfer last summer.

The 31-year-old was expected to be undisputed number one for Barca, but spent almost the entire season on the bench as youngster Victor Valdes established himself as boss Frank Rijkaard's first-choice.

Rustu has grown increasingly frustrated at his situation, fearing his lack of first-team action will harm his international chances.

As a result, he has now agreed a one-year loan switch to Fenerbahce, but will return to the Catalan giants in a year's time.
