Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo is close to joining Turkish giants Fenerbahce, his agent has revealed.

It was revealed earlier this week that Cardozo's future was set to be decided in the coming weeks, and he had been linked with a possible switch to the Premier League.

Manchester City and Cardiff were both understood to be keeping tabs on the 30-year-old Paraguay international.

However, Fenerbahce always appeared in pole position for his signature and a deal now looks close.

"The negotiations between the two clubs are going well and the agreement is practically closed. There are only a few details to be resolved," his agent Pedro Aldave is quoted by Turkish website Fanatik.

"His signing could come at any time," he added.
