Josef de Souza deal close as £10.6million fee agreed with Fenerbahce

Hürriyet have also reported what happened between Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim and Souza, when West Brom’s interest in the defensive midfielder emerged last week.

Fenerbahce’s Josef de Souza (L) vies with FC Lokomotiv Moscow’s Namenja Pejcinovic during the UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg football match between Fenerbahce and Lokomotiv Moscow at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, in Istanbul on February 16, 2016.

Fenerbahce have accepted an offer of €11.5m from West Bromwich Albion to sign Josef de Souza, report NtvSpor.

Souza has three worldwide caps for Brazil, but has not appeared for them since 2015, and will be hoping a good season in the Premier League could give him the chance to get back into the global frame. The Premier League side have struck a deal with Fenerbahce for De Souza. During that meeting Hurriyet claim Souza made it clear he was unhappy over the rejected bid, but it seems the South American has got this own way.

The arrival of the versatile midfield star, who can also play at right-back or in central defence, will open up the door for either Sam Field or Rekeem Harper to leave the Hawthorns on loan.

Sky Sports reports that Pulis also has an interest in Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho, but will not be allowed to sign the France worldwide unless Jonny Evans leaves the club.
