Norwich City striker Gary Hooper has demanded a move away from the club, following reports of interest from a number of Premier League sides, according to the Daily Mail.
The 26-year-old signed for Norwich last summer from Scottish Champions Celtic in a move that was reported to be worth £5 million.
Hooper scored 8 goals in 34 appearances for The Canaries but faced criticism from football pundits for his lack of goals, and was unable to save the club from relegation to the Championship.
The former Scunthorpe player has informed the Norwich management that he wishes to remain a Premier League player and will seek a move away from Carrow Road before the new season begins.
The Daily Mail has reported that Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and newly-promoted QPR will offer Hooper a return to England’s top flight.
As well as Premier League clubs, Hooper’s former club Celtic are also rumoured to be interested in bringing the striker back to Scotland.
Hooper scored 82 goals in 138 appearances during three years with The Bhoys, but with the club currently without a manager, a move back to Glasgow seems unlikely for the time being.
Norwich will put up a strong fight to keep hold of their star striker, with manager Neil Adams saying that Hooper will have a “key role” to play next season.
