Norwich are in talks with Fenerbahce over a loan deal for defender Joseph Yobo, both clubs have confirmed.

Joseph Yobo could be set for a return to the Premier League.

Davitt: Power of two not working

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 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 later also confirmed the negotiations on their official website.

A statement read: “City can confirm we are in talks with Turkish club Fenerbahce regarding a deal to bring experienced Nigerian international central defender Joseph Yobo to Carrow Road on loan until the end of the season.”

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.
