JOSEPH YOBO: ''I Am Not A Slave'', Rejects Transfer To Leicester CityFenerbahçe are working on a deal to sign the Nigeria international Joseph Yobo. Clearly, the experienced defender is frustrated with the transfer imbroglio, and wants the situation resolved quickly.

Joseph Yobo, who is under contract with Everton until June 2014, is not in the plans of the Premiership club this coming season. Now back at Everton, the Nigeria skipper was not dressed for Saturday's 4-1 hammering of League Two side Morecambe FC.

According to the online edition of Turkey's most influential daily, Milliyet, an agreement was reached last week between Everton and Leicester City for the sale of Joseph Yobo, but the center - back did not favor a move to England's second-tier.

''I am not a slave. I don't want to play for teams you want me to. I want to play in a team I feel happy,'' Yobo replied the Everton chiefs in a harsh tone.

Initially, Everton had valued Yobo at a transfer fee of 4.5 million pounds. That amount has been reduced to 3.5 million euros, but the Yellow Canaries are insisting on 2.5 million euros.
