Exclusive: Liverpool defender agrees €3m per season move to Turkey

Posted by

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is set to complete his move to the Turkish Super League giants Fenerbahce.

A source close to the Istanbul giants told Caught Offsides Eren Sarigul that the Slovakian international has agreed a three-year deal with Fenerbahce worth €3 million per season plus bonuses.

All parties involved are reported to be happy with the offer on the table. Skrtel will become the third player to join Fenerbahce this summer after Roman Neustadter and PSG’s Gregory van der Wiel who joined last week.

Fenerbahce have already parted ways with defenders Abdoulaye Ba, Gokhan Gonul and Bruno Alves over the summer and have made strengthening their defence a priority.

The Slovakian international joined Liverpool from Russian giants Zenit for £7.5 million in 2007 and went onto make 320 appearances for the Reds.

The Yellow Canaries will compete in the Champions League last season after finishing the leagues as runners-up.
