Gary Hooper: Celtic striker poised to complete his move to Norwich

The 25-year-old has been in Norwich all day discussing personal terms and is poised to sign a four-year contract.

Norwich have been in the hunt for Hooper for some time, with manager Chris Hughton seeing several bids rejected in the January transfer window.

Hooper looked set for a move to Championship side QPR, with the Hoops understood to have agreed a fee in the region of £5.5m for the 25-year-old on Wednesday.

Hull City also missed out with their approach in June, and QPR agreed a fee of £5.5m with Celtic earlier this week, before the Canaries rekindled their interest in the player.

Asked about the former Scunthorpe striker in the wake of a 1-0 defeat by Portland Timbers, Hughton said: "We are still working very hard.

"It is very difficult for me with the eight-hour time difference, but even with the conversations I am having with the chief scout it is trying to find the right times. Nothing imminent, but we are still working."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
