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."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
