Fenerbahce have announced the permanent signing of Everton defender Joseph Yobo.

Yobo, 31, has spent the last two seasons on loan at Fenerbahce, and the Turkish club have now moved to secure his signature on a permanent basis.

The Nigerian has signed a three-year deal with Fener, where he has made 62 league appearances and scored two goals.

Yobo signed for Everton from Marseille in 2002 for £3.5 million and went on to start 182 Premier League matches for the club.
