Joseph Yobo: Kuyt is a big boost for Fenerbahce

The Nigeria skipper has hailed the addition of the Dutch winger to the Turkish side
Fenerbahce defender Joseph Yobo has hailed the signing of Dutch winger Dirk Kuyt by the Turkish side.

Kuyt moved from Liverpool early in June on a three year deal after spending six years on Merseyside.

“I was happy when I heard the news of the signing,” Yobo told

“He’s someone I have played against in the Premier League. He’s going to be a big boost to the team,” said the Nigeria captain.

Yobo’s future is yet to be decided - whether he will continue with Fenerbahce this season as the Turkish Cup champions are willing to sign him on a permanent basis but Everton have not agreed to terms.

He told local media a few days ago that his “future will be settled soon.”
