Yobo returns to England with Norwich

30 January 2014 20:09

Joseph Yobo has returned the the Premier League after penning a loan deal at Norwich City for the rest of the season.

Yobo has spent the last three-and-a-half years at Super Lig side Fenerbahce after eight seasons in England with Everton.

The former Nigeria international had made just one league appearance for Fener this season, scoring in their opening-day defeat to Konyaspor.

However, since then he has been hampered by knee injuries and the form of defensive duo Egemen Korkmaz and Bruno Alves.

Yobo is Norwich's second signing of the January transfer window after Jonas Gutierrez's arrival from manager Chris Hughton's former club Newcastle United.

He could be in line to make his debut at Cardiff City on Saturday.

"As most know we’ve got a problem with Michael Turner, who’s got a hamstring pull which will continue to keep him out for a fair amount of time, so it’s an area we needed to fill," the Carrow Road boss said.

"Of course what Joseph is about is that he’s someone who knows this division very well, and has great experience."

Hughton remains hopeful of adding to his squad before Friday's deadline and said on Thursday: "It's the same as everybody else. We're still working hard, and will continue to do so right up until the last moments.

"If we're able to do something then that would be great, but if we're not then we have a competitive squad, and as I've said before we’ve got players who have been reintroduced to that squad."
