Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel is on the verge of a move to Fenerbache, which would bring an end to his eight-and-a-half year career at Anfield.
According to the Turkish club's president, Aziz Yildirim, the Slovakian's move to Fenerbache is almost done.

He revealed: "Van der Wiel and Slovak Skrtel transfers are almost done."
The 31-year-old has made 320 appearances for Liverpool since joining from Zenit St Petersburg for £6.5 million in January 2008.
During his time, he has scored 18 goals for Liverpool, and won the club's Player of the Year award back in 2012.
However, his future at the club has been in doubt for a few months now as he has fallen down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp.
Centre-back pairing Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren are preferred to the big Slovakian, even though the former is still awaiting the verdict of his failed drugs test from earlier this year.
To make matters worse for Skrtel, the arrival of Joel Matip from Schalke earlier this summer seems to further suggest that he will not be needed next season.
A move away from Anfield will be the right one for Skrtel, who still has plenty to offer over the next few years.
The Turkish side finished second in their league last season, just five points behind champions Besiktas. They'll be hoping Skrtel will quickly become part of a solid defense as the team chase qualification to the Champions League group stage later this summer.
