The France international at the centre of an interminable sex-tape scandal, Mathieu Valbuena, on Thursday signed for Istanbul giants Fenerbahce from Lyon.

"It's with great pride I come to play at Fenerbahce ... I'm going to fight for them to win titles," the 32-year-old told a press conference.

Valbuena, whose France career was ended by the sex-tape scandal in which he was the victim of an alleged blackmail attempt, enjoyed a long stint at Marseille up to 2014 before joining Dynamo Moscow and then moving on to French club Lyon a year later.

He scored 10 goals for Lyon last season, and has scored eight goals in 52 France appearances from 2010 to 2015.
