Yobo makes Norwich Move
Joseph Yobo has returned to English football after making a loan move to Norwich City.
The Fenerbahce centre-back previously spent a decade at Merseyside giants Everton, but has been in Turkey since 2010, when he moved on loan to the Istanbul side.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Yobo said: “This is a league I understand and I hope to give my best to Norwich.”
Yobo had the opportunity to join Cardiff City in the summer, but opted to remain in Turkey. Now, however, having made only two appearances all season, he has opted to help the Canaries as Chris Hughton’s team try to retain their Premier League status.
“It’s a very important decision and I’m happy with the opportunity to return to England” said Yobo, who may also see a move to the EPL as a way to reigniting his international career. To date, he has made 95 appearances for the Super Eagles, and while he remains the nation’s nominal captain, he has overlooked since the Cup of Nations.
