Sky Bet have suspended betting on Robin van Persie joining Fenerbahce following a run of bets at short odds.

The Manchester United striker was backed at prices as short as 1/10 to join the Turkish Super Lig club amid press reports that he has already agreed personal terms on a four-year contract.

The two clubs are also said to be negotiating a fee for the 31-year Netherlands international, according to the newspaper.

Sky Bet's Chris Spicer said: "We already held Fenerbahce as clear favourites to sign Van Persie but recent media reports seem to have sparked more intense interest, with the one-sided nature of the money forcing us to pull the market.

"Van Persie has been odds-on to leave Manchester United since the transfer window re-opened and it now looks like his destination has been settled."
