Fenerbahce have agreed a deal with Spartak Moscow for the transfer of Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike.

Should the transfer be completed, it would leave manager Ersun Yanal and the club with a problem, as Emenike would become the 11th foreign player in the squad. Turkish Super Lig sides are limited to 10 foreign players per season.

The 26-year-old will return to Turkey, having formerly played for Karabukspor before moving to Russia, provided he passes a medical and agrees personal terms.

Emenike spent two seasons in the Russian capital, scoring 23 goals in all competitions for the club.

The Nigerian lists Delta Force, Black Aces and Cape Town among his former clubs before moving to Turkey in 2009.

Emenike previoulsy signed for Fener in May 2011, but left for Russia just a month later after being arrested as part of a match-fixing probe. He was later acquitted of all charges.
