Talksport report that City are closing in on the signing of Celtic hit man, Gary Hooper…
TALKSPORT report this morning that Norwich City are closing in on the signing of Celtic`s prolific striker, Gary Hooper.
The report suggests that The Canaries have already held talks with Hooper, and also mentions that Chris Hughton is confident of getting his man.
If true, this would, in my opinion, be a great signing for Norwich City. I should point out though that on the day that Grant Holt signed his new contract last summer, TALKSPORT reported that Sunderland were favourites to sign him.
So don`t get down to the club shop and get your “HOOPER” shirt printed just yet.
More as the story develops?
As I said, don’t get too carried away just yet. Chris Hughton is reported in the EDP as saying “No, that is not correct” when asked directly about a City bid for Hooper.
The story has now been picked up by the BBC as well but is there anything in it? Who knows? All we know is that, as usual, City are playing their cards very close to their chest…
