The Nigerian defender has been a commanding figure in the heart of The Toffees' defence and his displays have helped the Merseysiders to the dizzy heights of fourth in The Premiership.
"I am more or less settled now," Yobo told the club's website.
"I am used to everybody and used to the game and it's time for me to show my quality and my confidence.
"The team is also playing well which makes me feel more relaxed playing.
"I feel at home. I am happy with everyone, I am used to everything and I am very happy. Of course I will be happy to stay."
Yobo signed on a season-long loan from Marseille and Everton are believed to have agreed a fee with l'OM for the African defender.
The defensive stalwart also paid tribute to the Everton fans who supported him when he was down.
"When I was injured at the start of the season the fans were really behind me, and that helped me settle down very quickly and I was really thankful for that," continued Yobo.
"They were behind me when I was not playing. No-one had even seen me play and they were behind me, which is wonderful.
"Each time I play now the fans seem happy to see me.
"I love them because they love me, they are just wonderful."
The World Cup star also heaped praise on David Moyes who convinced the player that the club would not be invloved in a relegation dog-fight.
"I knew when I spoke to the manager before I came that we wouldn't struggle against relegation this season," added Yobo.
"We didn't have a bad team anyway and with a manager like that I knew we would do much better than the previous season.
"I was a little confused after the World Cup about where I should go. I am a young player but David Moyes helped me make my mind up. He gave me the response I wanted. He wanted to make me a better player. He wanted to teach me things.
"I am learning from him. It has been fantastic working with him and the other stars here. I am just happy because I am learning and the team is playing well."
