ISTANBUL (AP) — Fenerbahce has signed Raul Meireles from Chelsea on a four-year contract.

A statement posted on Fenerbahce's website said the Portugal midfielder joined the Istanbul side late Monday, days before Turkey's summer transfer window closes.

The 29-year-old Meireles transferred to Fenerbahce only after one season with Chelsea.

The club said it would pay Chelsea €10 million ($12 million) for the transfer.
