Former Norwich City star Gary Hooper signs with Wellington Phoenix

Wellington Phoenix believe they may have the club's best-ever signing, coaxing former Celtic forward Gary Hooper to the A-League.

Hooper, 31, joins as a free agent, most recently with Sheffield Wednesday, after a career in English and Scottish football.

The Englishman will be hoping to recapture his form with the Glasgow Giants, where he won two titles and a golden boot.

Hooper has signed a one-season marquee deal and will miss this weekend's away trip to play Sydney FC ahead of a likely debut in round three against Perth Glory.

His signing raises hopes that the perennial A-League strugglers may be able to back up last year's surprise finals appearance.

More postive news as an extra 4 senior players return from injury

More positive news came from the club yesterday with hints that the injury crisis may be about to ease.

Following the earlie news that Tom Trybull was back in trainging, three more of City's senior outfield players and the club's first choice goalkeeper have all returned to training ahead of this weekend's match, although that may yet prove to be a bit too soon for some of them

Whilst you would imagine that Vrancic and Hernandez won’t be ready to start a game yet, Alex Tettey and Tim Krul could very well come back into the side at Bournemouth on Saturday to give the team a much needed boost ahead of their next run of games.

 

Injury Relief As Trybull Returns To Training For Norwich City

Norwich City have had a torrid time with injuries so far this season in the Premier League.

The Canaries have had 18 of their 26-man squad pick up an injury since the start of pre-season, with over 10 players currently missing.

However, the club have revealed that Tom Trybull has returned to training having been missing since August with an injury.

The potential return of Trybull for the trip to Bournemouth could be crucial for Norwich. His tenacity to win the ball back and break up the play could be exactly what Daniel Farke’s side needs to pick up the three points and climb out of the bottom three.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Tracking Bayern Munich II Striker Kwasi Okyere Wriedt

Norwich City have got their eye on a Bayern Munich footballer. Kwasi Okyere Wriedt, a 25-year-old striker with an extraordinary eye for goal: he has scored 56 goals in 76 games, and it is no surprise seeing the former Osnabruck player's figures.

According to 'Bild', the English club want to sign him in January, strengthening their squad in the face of the second half of the Premier League season.

Last season, Okyere scored 26 goals in 36 official games, a figure he could surpass this year as he has already scored eight goals in just eleven games for the German subsidiary team.

Wriedt made his debut for Bayern Munich on 25 October 2017, coming on as a substitute in the 101st minute for Thiago in an away match against RB Leipzig in the second round of the 2017–18 edition of the DFB-Pokal. The match finished 1–1 after extra time, with Bayern advancing after winning 5–4 in a penalty shoot-out.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Tracking 15 Year Old Hot Prospect Charlie Allen

It has been reported that Premier League duo Southampton and Norwich have joined the race for the highly-rated and hugely talented young Linfield attacking midfielder.

The 15-year-old has already had a trial at Tottenham Hotspur and at Manchester City, with Chelsea also interested in taking the attacking midfielder on trial, according to the report.

It has been reported that Southampton and Norwich hope that them being able to offer a quicker pathway to first-team football convinces Allen to move to St. Mary’s Stadium or Carrow Road.

Tough choice

Allen is only 15 years of age, and it is clear that the Linfield attacking midfielder is not going to get into the first team of any club in the Premier League anytime soon.

What the teenager needs to do right now is move to a club where he is going to develop and improve the most in the next two to three years.
