Joseph Yobo Joins Norwich On-Loan.

Norwich have sealed a deal with Turkish side, Fenerbahce, over the loan transfer of defender Joseph Yobo.

Fenerbahce said in a statement to the stock market that most capped Nigeria international will join Canaries for the rest of the season.

“Our talent Michael Joseph Yobo temporary transfer until the end of the 2013-2014 season for Norwich City FC,” the statement said.

Media reports expects the Super Eagles captain to earn about 800,000 Euros.

The 33-year-old, who left Everton in August 2012 and played against Arsenal in their Champions League qualifier in August, now return to the Premier League to help boost the Canaries’ bid to retain their top-flight status.

The move is expected to improve Yobo’s chances of making coach Stephen Keshi’s squad for the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil, after fallen out of favour at the Istanbul club.

He is expected to travel to England to join his new team this weekend before Sunday’s transfer deadline
