Sheffield Wednesday have signed Norwich striker Gary Hooper on an emergency loan deal.

The former Celtic player, who has netted 20 goals in 70 matches for the Canaries, will remain at Hillsborough until January 17.

Hooper, recently recovered from an ankle injury, has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Carrow Road this term and the last of his two appearances came in the defeat to Southampton at the end of August.

The 27-year-old will link up with fellow Norwich loanee Michael Turner at the Owls.
