Nigeria's Yobo completes Turkey Feberbahce move
Everton defender Joseph Yobo confirmed on Monday he has completed a permanent move to Fenerbahce.
The 31-year-old Nigerian, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at the Turkish club, has signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
"I would love to thank Everton and the management of Fenerbahce for reaching a deal," Yobo told the Premier League club's official website.
"My family have settled well in Turkey and enjoy the life there, so I'm glad they will be re-uniting 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."
Nigeria international Yobo joined Everton from French side Marseille, initially on loan, in July 2002 and made more than 250 appearances for the club, the last of them in a 0-0 Premier League draw at Stoke in May 2010.
His contract at Goodison Park was due to run until the summer of 2014.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
