The Scunthorpe Telegraph have a strange fixation with Scunthorpe`s former striker, Gary Hooper and regularly carry stories about the Norwich striker`s future career prospects.
So far this summer, the Telegraph have linked Hoops with both Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest. They now report that Middlesbrough have entered the fray and mention that BetVictor is offering odds of just 6/4 that Hooper will be a ‘Boro player come the end of the transfer window.
It seems the prospective arrival of a new striker at Carrow Road means that Hooper is being linked with a move away from Norwich. To my mind Lafferty and RvW would be way ahead of Hoops in the queue to leave?
