Cardiff are looking into the possibility of signing Fenerbahçe defender Joseph Yobo according to Turkish newspaper Fanatik.

The newly promoted side want to add experience to their ranks and Yobo who spent eight seasons in the Premier League with Everton, fits the bill.

Yobo's future at Fenerbahçe has been called into question after the Istanbul giants signed Bruno Alves from Zenit for €5.5 million.

The Nigerian international is also believed to be unhappy with Aykut Kocaman's departure.

Fenerbahçe are facing pressure as competition for foreign spaces increase. The Turkish Football Federation only permits six foreign players on the field at any one time.

Yobo joined Fenerbahçe from Everton for €2.5 million last season and made 34 appearances in all competitions in 2012-13.
