Gary Hooper: Top of Steve Bruce's transfer targets

Tigers boss Steve Bruce is determined to land the highly-rated 25-year-old, who was the subject of keen interest from Norwich in January.

Norwich manager Chris Hughton had four separate offers rejected by Celtic, but he is believed to be considering another bid for Hooper over the summer.

However, Hughton will not be willing to pay over the odds having already signed Dutch forward Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Hooper has one year remaining on his contract with Celtic, but he has not agreed terms on an extension to his deal and is believed to be keen to move south of the border to boost his hopes of an England call-up.

He has also been linked with relegated Reading, whose manager Nigel Adkins was Hooper's boss at Scunthorpe between 2008 and 2010.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
