Brazilian Flop Goes Cold Turkey

Turkish giants Galatasaray confirmed that they have secured the loan signing of Manchester City striker Jo on a six month contract.

Everton signed the 22-year-old Brazilian on a season-long loan last summer with the option of a permanent deal, however, his time at Goodison park was tarnished when he absconded to Brazil, leaving David Moyes' side in a difficult situation over the busy Christmas period.

Subsequently, Moyes suspended Jo and has decided to cut his loan short, the lanky front-man only managing a pathetic goal-haul of two this term.

Jo now heads off to Istanbul where he will link up with former Manchester City midfielder and Brazilian international Elano, in a bid to resurrect his career.

Why can't we just off load him permanently? It looks like nobody else in the Premier League are dumb enough to sign him seeing as he has flopped at City and also whilst on loan at Everton.

Its embarrassing he is on our books, I hope he sets the Turkish league alight and nets us some of our money back.

I love the title eighthsin, nice one mate. Pity Jo couldn't cut in the Premier League but he wasn't the first player to fail miserably and he won't be the last either.

Just didn't have the work ethic did he? Funny how when he arrived I thought he could be our Adebayor!
