Fenerbahce Close To Yakin Signing

Fenerbahce are said to be closing to signing Swiss midfield sensation Hakan Yakin for 2.5m euros.

The Basel star joined Paris St Germain last summer only for the transfer to be cancelled due to a concealed injury.

The 26-year-old has once again proved to be an inspiration for Basel, who are racing towards the Swiss championship, and has again attracted plenty of interest in his signature.

Christophe Daum has expressed an interest in signing Yakin, whose agent has said the the transfer is close to being concluded.

Basel president Gigi Oeri and coach Christian Gross are understood to have accepted it is time, once again, to sell Yakin, who is constantly surrounded by transfer speculation.

Hakan's brother Murat, who is currently at Basel, had a spell in Turkey with Fenerbahce.
