Speaking to Norwich City's official site, Hughton said: "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.

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

Yobo, 33, played for Standard Liege, Marseille, Tenerife and Everton before joining Fenerbahce in August 2010. He made a total of 258 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees, scoring ten goals.
