Fenerbahce sign Chelsea midfielder Meireles

  • Turkish soccer club Fenerbahce have signed midfielder Raul Meireles from Chelsea.

    According to Turkish media reports, Meireles has signed a four-year contract.

    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 club Liverpool in 2011.

    The Istanbul club, runners-up to Galatasaray last season in Turkey's Super League, have been on the look out to boost their midfield following Emre Belozoglu departure for Atletico Madrid on a free transfer earlier this year.
