Kazim-Richards goes to Fenerbahce

Kazim-Richards is eligible for Turkey through his mother
Turkish champions Fenerbahce have signed Sheffield United striker Colin Kazim-Richards on a four-year deal.

The 20-year-old made his debut for Turkey in June's goalless draw against Brazil and reportedly attracted interest from a host of Turkish clubs.

But the Istanbul club won the race having offered in the region of 1.275m for the former Brighton man, who joined the Blades for 150,000 last summer.

Kazim-Richards made 29 appearances for the Blades, but scored just one goal.

That strike came against Bolton at Bramall Lane in November, but despite his poor return in front of goal Turkey boss Fatih Terim secured his services at international level.

Kazim-Richards, who was born in London, is eligible to play for Turkey through his Turkish Cypriot mother.

He came on after 62 minutes of the recent friendly against Brazil in Dortmund and shared four minutes in attack with Tuncay Sanli, who is set to leave Fenerbahce for Middlesbrough.

"I know I have made the right decision to come to the biggest club in Turkey," said Kazim-Richards.

"I can't wait for the season to start and for Fenerbahce to go on to win another Turkish title."

The transfer fee will give new Blades boss Bryan Robson more freedom in the transfer market as he looks to bring in his own targets.
