Newly promoted Norwich City are still keen on signing Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes.
The Scotland striker spent last season on loan with the Canaries and played an important role as Daniel Farke’s men romped to promotion back to the Premier League.
And according to respected journalist Alan Nixon, Norwich are still keen on landing Rhodes ahead of the upcoming season as they look to reach an agreement with Sheffield Wednesday over a fee for the striker.
Rhodes has struggled to get back to anything like his best form since moving to the Owls a few seasons ago in a mega-money move from Middlesbrough, and he was shipped out last season to Norwich amid concerns he wouldn’t get any game time for the Owls.
However, Rhodes found himself in a key role under Daniel Farke at Carrow Road, and while he did play second fiddle to top scorer Teemu Pukki, he did still manage an impressive enough six goals in just nine starts for the Canaries.
Wednesday are looking to recoup as much money as they can for Rhodes will will know that they don’t stand much chance of getting the £10m back they initiall shelled out, with Nixon reporting that a fee in the region of £4m looks more likely.
I’m amazed this hasn’t gone through already to be honest, so it should only be a matter of time.
Rhodes has failed miserable at Wednesday but Daniel Farke obviously sees something in him what he feels can help his squad along in the Premier League.
He does have experience and is still a good finisher, but there has be question marks over whether he can do it in the top flight given his form of the past few seasons.
