Cape Town - Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is set to join Turkish club Fenerbahce for a reported fee of £5.5m, according to reports.

Skrtel is currently at Euro 2016 with Slovakia and is expected to sign after the tournament wraps up, the Daily Telegraph said.

The 31-year old started just four games for Jurgen Klopp’s side after returning from injury in January and his chances seem limited for next season after falling behind Dejan Lovren, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure in the pecking order.

The signing of Cameroon defender Joel Matip from Schalke would also suggest that Skrtel’s eight-year stay at Anfield is nearing an end.

Skrtel is expected to undergo a medical and make the switch once Slovakia’s tournament is over.
