The Turkish Super Lig side announced the deal with a tweet welcoming the Slovakian defender.

Fener said the player would be presented to the media at on Friday. No details over the length of contract were immediately announced, and it has been reported that the Istanbul club paid Liverpool £5million for the 31-year-old.

Skrtel had been one of the Reds’ longest-serving players, joining from Zenit St Petersburg back in 2008 and he made 242 Premier League appearances, scoring 12 goals.

He fell down the pecking order last season under boss Jurgen Klopp, with Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and veteran Kolo Toure all selected ahead of him, while the summer arrival of Joel Matip isolated him further.
