New Crystal Palace boss, Neil Warnock is being heavily linked with Norwich City striker, Gary Hoooper, this morning.

Yesterday, TalkSport reported that their some time radio co-host was interested in City outcast, Sebastien Bassong and now there’s the news that he’d like Hooper as well.

Hooper was City’s top scorer last season with 8 goals in 23 appearances with 6 coming in the Premier League. It seems that his form in Scotland for Celtic means he still has value to those looking for a striker. QPR and Aston Villa are also linked with a move for a player that cost £5m a year aga and has yet to feature for City this term due to injury.

The latest on his recovery is that he has started running freely again, as has Johnny Howson and should be fit for a return to the squad very soon – assuming he’s still with us, this time next week…
