Kocaman has also targeted Cristian Baroni, Reto Ziegler, Hasan Ali Kaldirim and Recep Niyaz.

Yobo previously spent ten seasons at Everton before moving to Fenerbahce. The powerful centre back spent four seasons with the Istanbul giants winning the league in his first season.

The former Marseille man spent last season on loan at Norwich City in the Premier League.

Yoba has made a 101 appearances for the Nigerian national team.
