The Nigerian defender was an Integral part of the Portuguese side’s setup last season, but he seems to have lost his place in the first team after the arrival of Wendell.
Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi has been linked with a move to former Turkish Super Lig Champions Fenerbahce.
According to a tweet from Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, the Yellow Canaries see the former Santa Clara full-back as a good addition to their ranks.

The Portuguese league’s transfer window is closed. However, it means that they can not register players, but they can still sell players.
And since the Turkish transfer window is still open till September 8, the Yellow Canaries can still snap up the Nigerian before deadline day.
After his arrival from Santa Clara for $4.4m last summer, Sanusi became constant fixture at the left-back position for the dragoes.
He played every minute of their victory over Juventus in the Champions League last season.
He made 41 appearances in all competitions for the former Portuguese Champions to help them to a second place berth in the Primera Liga last season.
Sanusi is currently with the Super Eagles, ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde.
