Norwich City’s on-loan centre back, Joseph Yobo is nearing a return to first team duties, according to Nigerian media outlets.

Yobo has been missing since Chris Hughton’s reign ended and Neil Adams’ began and if you ask me, he’s been a big miss.

Last week, Adams said that Yobo was still out with a calf strain that would need another week or so to get right completely.

Chiedozie Nwabueze, a close associate of the player has allayed fears over the Norwich City centre back’s fitness.

‘I was shocked when I read in the media that he was out for the rest of the season. I spoke with Joe and he was equally surprised over the news. He was 90 per cent fit for last weekend’s game and was left out only as a precautionary measure,’ Nwabueze said.

Fingers crossed that Nwabueze really is a close associate.

Neil Adams will be presenting his usual pre-match press conference at 1pm on Thursday and we may well know more then.
