Turkish club Fenerbahce have
signed midfielder Raul Meireles from Chelsea, the Premier League
club said on their website on Monday.
Turkish media reports said Meireles had signed a four-year
contract. Fenerbahce earlier said they had started negotiations
to buy him in a statement to the Istanbul Stock Exchange.
The 29-year-old, who has played more than 60 times for
Portugal, was signed by Chelsea on a four-year contract from
Premier League rivals Liverpool in 2011.
The Istanbul club, runners-up to Galatasaray last season in
Turkey's Super League, have been looking to bolster their
midfield after Emre Belozoglu left for Atletico Madrid on a free
transfer earlier this year.
Turkey's transfer window closes on Wednesday.
