Fenerbahce after West Brom & Aston Villa target Rolando

Fenerbahce have been linked with the Porto centre back Rolando.

The Istanbul giants are in the market for a new defender in January after Burno Alves fell out of favour with manager Ismail Kartal.

Alves hasn’t been included in the Fenerbahce squad following his dismissal in the Intercontinental Derby against Galatasaray.

According to reports from Portugal, Porto are willing to sell Rolando in January for a cut price €1.3m after freezing him out this season.

The Portugal international has one and a half years remaining on his contract.

Premier League sides West Brom and Aston Villa have both been linked with the 29-year-old in recent weeks.

Rolando made 29 appearances on loan at Serie A side Inter last season.

The powerful centre back has won three league championships, three Portuguese Cups and the 2011 Europa League during his six years with Porto.
