Norwich City today announced the signing of Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes on a season-long loan deal.
He became Daniel Farke’s fifth signing of the summer and will add some much-needed threat to the Canaries’ attack.
There are not many better strikers to bring in when you need Championship goals.
Rhodes has 99 of them in 238 appearances in the division so seems like a very good person for Farke to bring in for the coming season.
The Carrow Road faithful are also delighted with the business, not least because Rhodes is a youth graduate of arch rivals Ipswich Town.
It is a move that will undoubtedly rile their fans but the Norwich fans could not care less.
With Nelson Oliveira and Teemu Pukki also in attack, the Canaries have some real firepower going into the new season and optimism is rising around Norfolk.
Here are some of the Norwich City fans’ best responses to the news that Rhodes is now a Canary.
just give us the title now.
