The 33-year-old Nigeria international played only twice for parent club Fenerbahce this term before he secured a January loan move to Carrow Road, where he has already featured six times as Chris Hughton's side battle against the Premier League drop.

The ex-Everton defender wants to keep doing all he can to keep the Canaries up - as well as boost his own hopes of earning a place in Nigeria's World Cup squad.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's crunch home clash with Sunderland, Yobo told the Daily Mirror: "My main priority is Norwich, the World Cup after that.

Ready

"I need to be 100 per cent ready for the World Cup. Whatever I am going to do, going to the World Cup or my next move, this position gets me ready for anything.

"Fighting for relegation, I haven't really been there in a long time. At Everton were pushing for Europe, at Fenerbahce we were pushing to win the league. But when you are down the bottom it is about grinding out results.

"It is strange and a different type of football. But I strongly believe Norwich will stay up.

"At home we are very dominant, we just have to improve our away form. It is not down to the manager - the players have to stand up and take more responsibility. We have made a few mistakes.

"It would be a big achievement (to keep the Canaries up)."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
