The summer-long Joseph Yobo transfer saga is over after Fenerbahçe finally completed the signing of the Nigerian defender on a three-year contract.
The two clubs have wrangled over the deal for most of the close season but reached a deal yesterday, believed to be worth £2m, paving the way for the defender to tie up personal terms this weekend.
Yobo's move brings a ten-year spell at Everton to a close, although the 31-year-old has spent two years in Turkey already on loan.

But I agree, we need one more accomplished forward on loan until Naismith is fully fit.

Looking forward to a decent start for once.... COYB

A couple of seasons ago TW was in danger of being labelled a positive forum, many on here (me included) thought we were an outside bet for a top 4 challenge. Some loons even shouted "title!"
Now, for me personally, a decent start is all I want.

Two weeks tomorrow and if things remain this quiet I'll be happy. Although, if the Yobo cash was available, and if could get rid of Anichibe, at least one new player in that would add to the squad would give me an extra lift.

All quiet at the moment, but 3.5 weeks still to go until we know that Baines, Fellaini, Heitinga etc, will definitely be here for the season. I think the only way this will happen is that we've somehow managed to borrow against the increased future Sky money.

If you've been following the other thread, our members of the Flat Earth Society will be quick to point out that Arteta asked to leave though, and it wasn't at all to appease the banks.

I hope you're right about Vic...
And as for the Turks, we should never do any dealings with them again.
980 Posted 06/08/2012 at 10:05:58
Oh well it's done and there is some cash to spend on loans maybe permanent signings... isn't there?

Jem, my query is why the OS haven't confirmed it as it's been a couple of days (?) since it was reported on ToffeeWeb (or they source they got it from).
014 Posted 06/08/2012 at 14:20:12
But its now on the official site as a done deal !!!!!

It must be getting close to the big kick-off as there is more drivel pouring out of 'The Freshy'. Gotta love these little inside tip-offs, not least from someone who, if memory serves, turned his back on the last window because it was uncomfortably full of inside tip-offs and wild and gormless speculation.
Can't wait for 18 August.

It would weaken our position with Spurs if we had ready money.
