Norwich are in talks with Fenerbahce over a loan deal for defender Joseph Yobo, the Turkish club have confirmed.
The 33-year-old left Everton in August 2012 and played against Arsenal in their Champions League qualifier in August, but now appears set for a return to the Barclays Premier League to help boost the Canaries' bid to retain their top-flight status.
A post on Fenerbahce's official Twitter feed read: "Negotiations over the hire of our player Joseph Yobo to Norwich City until the end of the 2013-2014 season have begun."
Norwich manager Chris Hughton has been looking to add to his squad following the loan signing of midfielder Jonas Gutierrez from Newcastle.
The Canaries - whose ill-tempered 0-0 draw against the Magpies on Tuesday night left them in 12th place, five points above the drop zone - have also been linked with Blackburn centre-back Scott Dann as well as Newcastle's Steven Taylor and Lazio's Michael Ciani.
