The news comes after Yobo expressed a desire to join the Turkish side following last season's loan move. The Nigeria international said: "I do not want to return to Everton because I have seen the difference in playing in a competitive team on a regular basis and that has helped me to improve."

Kenwright said of the 30-year-old's transfer: "I think a result can be achieved in a few days. I have had no other bids."

Yobo impressed during his loan spell and scored the goal that sealed the Turkish championship on the final day of the season. The transfer fee is expected to be in the region of £6 million.
