The Nigeria international underwent a medical and is expected to put pen to paper on an 18-month loan deal with the Yellow Canaries.
The 28-year-old watched Fenerbahce’s exit from the Turkish Cup against second-tier side Umraniyespor from the stands at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on Thursday.
Moses is expected to make his debut next week in the league clash against Goztepe at home.
The powerful winger struggled for playing time this season under the management of Maurizio Sarri who used Moses sparingly giving him just 176 minutes of first-team football.
