Yobo loaned out to Fenerbahce

The Everton defender Joseph Yobo has completed his move to Turkish side Fenerbahce on a season-long loan.

The deal, which includes the option to make the transfer permanent next summer, went through yesterday afternoon ahead of the closure of the Turkish transfer window, after the 29-year-old agreed terms and passed a medical.

Yobo, who joined Everton from Marseilles in 2002, has not played for the club this season, most recently missing the 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa last weekend with a slight thigh problem.

Yobo has made nearly 200 Premier League appearances for the Toffees.
