Aston Villa and Everton target Diego Ribas 'could leave Turkey at the end of the season'

Diego Ribas is looking for a way out of Fenerbahce after failing to settle into life in Istanbul.

The Brazilian playmaker has found himself on the fringes of the squad, starting just 10 games in the Turkish Super Lig this season.

Diego’s father and agent Djair Ribas confirmed his sons desire to leave in the summer.

“Diego has a few problems with the staff, he is not being played a lot and is not really all that happy so he could leave Turkey at the end of the season.” Djair told the Turkish newspaper Milliyet.

According to the Sun Newspaper, both Everton and Aston Villa are interested in signing the 30-year-old.
