Nigeria defender Yobo joined Norwich City late in the January transfer window, on loan from Fenerbahce, and could get his Canaries debut on Saturday, when title-chasing Manchester City are the visitors to Carrow Road.
Yobo revealed his decision to return to England had been made easier by a sales pitch from Chris Hughton, who tempted him to pick East Anglia over a number of potential destinations.
"I'm excited that I had this opportunity to come back to England," Yobo said.
"It's probably the best league in the world, and it's a new challenge so I'm looking forward to it.
"There were loads of clubs from abroad who were interested in me, but the manager here convinced me and I wanted to come back to the Premier League.
"We had a week break for Christmas in Turkey but then two weeks of training after that and it was good, so I'm ready to go.
"I trained yesterday [Tuesday] but today it was with the whole squad so I'm happy to be here. I know a few of the players already, it wasn't entirely new to me but I felt welcome."
