Captain fantastic, the goal scoring Captain of the Nigerian Senior National team-Joseph Yobo finally signed today, to stay another season on Loan with the Turkish Liga current Champion-Fenerbahce,after what had seemed like another unhappy season at Liverpool, where JY plays for Everton FC in the English Premiership League.  Last season, Joseph for the 1st time won a very significant League championship with Fenerbahce where he had also been on loan, many had expected that the loan deal would have become a full transfer to the Turkish champion without any stress, but JY parent club-Everton seemed to have an agenda all their own, asking for an amount that the Turkish club did not agree to, but while negotiations were ongoing, another dilemma came up, with the match fixing allegations.

One hopes the whole match fixing imbroglio would soon be sorted out, so that Joe could be seen, showing his class at the next UEFA Champions League 2011/2012. According to Joe-
"I'm delighted everything is resolved, it's been a frustrating three months to be honest," he said.

"A little hitch here and there but finally I have rejoined a club where I found relative calm, happiness and excitement last season.

"I am happy with the decision that I have taken, it is normal for a player to seek regular playing time and I know Fenerbahce guarantee that."
