EDIN DZEKO has agreed to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce on a two-year deal.
The 37-year-old started in Inter Milan’s Champions League final clash with Manchester City in Istanbul but was unable to guide the Serie A side to victory.
Dzeko’s contract was left to expire after he rejected Inter’s offer of a one-year extension.
The Bosnian striker arrived back in Istanbul overnight, where he will sign his contract with Fenerbahce.
Dzeko scored 31 goals in 101 appearances for Inter over the past two seasons.
He scored 14 goals in 52 appearances last term as Inter won the Italian cup and reached the final of the Champions League under Simone Inzaghi.
