Jô fills in for Baroš at Galatasaray

Galatasaray AŞ have secured cover for injured striker Milan Baroš, bringing in Brazilian striker Jô on loan from Manchester City FC until the end of the season.

Sizeable void
Czech international Baroš has not played since breaking his foot against Fenerbahçe SK on 25 October and last week underwent a second operation, delaying any comeback by a further four weeks. Former PFC CSKA Moskva man Jô will be asked to fill the sizeable void – Baroš had scored five goals in ten league appearances prior to being sidelined – as he seeks to rekindle the form that earned him ten Brazil caps. The 22-year-old has spent the last 12 months at Everton, and though largely a substitute this season, he featured five times for the Toffees in the UEFA Europa League group stage so will not be eligible to play for Galatasaray in the competition. Jô follows in the footsteps of Lucas Neill, who swapped Everton for Frank Rijkaard's team earlier this month.
