Norwich City Agree Fee With Celtic for Gary Hooper: Daily Soccer Report

gary hooper Norwich City Agree Fee With Celtic for Gary Hooper: Daily Soccer Report

Norwich City have agreed a fee with Celtic for star striker Gary Hooper only hours after Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp said the player was close to signing for the London-based club.

Hooper has been Celtic’s top goalscorer for the past three seasons, but the 25-year-old striker looks set to leave Scotland where he’ll discuss personal terms and have a medical with Norwich before joining the Canaries.

English-born, Hooper has climbed through the ranks of Southend and Scunthorpe before moving to Celtic in 2010 for £2.4million.

If Norwich are able to finalize the deal, it’s another strong signing in a summer transfer window where they’ve already added Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Leroy Fer.

Here are today’s world soccer news headlines:

  3. Rob Donnelly says:

    Really pleased that Hooper has decided to sign for Norwich and look forward to seeing him in the Premier League.

    He’s a great finisher and seems to find space in the box,he reminds me of Kevin Phillips.

    If he gets the goals there might be a place on the plane to Brazil for him, if England make it.

  4. Ryan says:

    Really sad to see him go but wish him all the best with Norwich.
