Fenerbache have an option to sign the attacking player on a permanent deal after the expiration of the loan deal. Dede finally signed the contract on Friday after passing the medical following two days of speculation over the Fenerbahce move.
It is expected that the Yellow Canaries of Turkey will register Dede in time to enable him play for them in the Champions League Third-Round clash against Benfica in Portugal on 7 August.
