Norwich City’s move to bring Jordan Rhodes on board has been resurrected, with the Sheffield Wednesday striker expected to make the switch across the Sky Bet Championship on a season-long loan.
A deal seemed to have collapsed late last week, but a report from the Daily Mail has confirmed that Rhodes looks set to arrive at Carrow Road on a season-long loan.
The 28-year-old has been with Sheffield Wednesday for 18 months now, but has failed to have a major impact in South Yorkshire.
During his time at Hillsborough, Rhodes has made 55 appearances but only returned 10 goals for the Owls.
Last season, he made 17 starts in the Championship, with a further 14 coming from the bench.
Those 31 appearances brought just five goals, however, with Wednesday struggling in mid-table.
Prior to his move to Hillsborough, Rhodes was amongst the most prolific strikers outside the top-flight.
During spells with Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers, Rhodes scored 156 league goals, before earning a Premier League chance following promotion with Middlesbrough.
There is an element of risk to this for Norwich, as Rhodes has struggled at Sheffield Wednesday.
However, Rhodes has previously been outstanding in the Championship, and if Norwich can help him find his best level, he will be a good signing.
Only taking the 28-year-old on-loan does take an element of risk away.
