The Portugal international has been cleared as fit to play and is available for selection this weekend against last placed Balıkesirspor.

The 31-year-old joined Fenerbahçe from Chelsea for €10 million and has won two Turkish Cups as well as the league title.


Emre Belözoğlu and Mehmet Topuz trained apart from the team after failing to recover from injury.

Both players are a doubt for the Süper Lig game on the weekend.

Fenerbahçe slipped down to third place after drawing 1-1 with Eskişehirspor last week.

The Istanbul Giants are one point behind leaders Beşiktaş and second placed Galatasaray.
