Zokora swaps Sevilla for Trabzonspor

Having finished second in the Turkish Süper Lig, Trabzonspor AŞ will strengthen their midfield for next term with the signing of Didier Zokora after agreeing a fee with Sevilla FC.

Didier Zokora is set to end his stay at Sevilla FC by moving to Trabzonspor AŞ on a four-year deal.

The Ivory Coast midfielder, who arrived in Seville from Tottenham Hotspur FC in summer 2009, leaves the Rojiblancos having made 49 Liga appearances. He also featured in eight UEFA Champions League games during the 2009/10 campaign, helping Sevilla to the round of 16.

Zokora, 30, joins a Trabzonspor side which finished second in the Turkish Süper Lig last term, behind Fenerbahçe SK only on goal difference, to earn a place in next season's UEFA Champions League play-offs. He has signed a pre-contract agreement after a fee was agreed on Thursday and will undergo a medical next week before the transfer is finalised.
