Fenerbahce are going through some terrible times, finding them selves in the relegation zone. The Yellow Canaries have are in 17th place with just 16 points — 19 away from the top of the league.

The transfer window will be remain open until January 31 as clubs in Turkey continue to look for deals to help them achieve their objectives in the second half of the season. Unsurprisingly, it has been a quiet January due to the financial hardships Turkish clubs have faced this past year due to the weak Turkish Lira, high levels of debt and Financial Fair Play obligations.
