Bolton Wanderers Swoop for Hoop(er)

According to the BEN and a million people on Twitter, new Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon is set to make his former Celtic striker Gary Hooper his first signing.

26 year old Harlow-born struck an in impressive 82 goals in 132 appearances for Cetic - which allegedly saw him on the verge of an England international call-up back when England did that sort of thing.

A big money £6m move to Norwich came about 2013, and although Hooper was the Canaries' top scorer last season as they were relegated from the Premier League, he has made just the one appearance this season amid injury and rumours of a fallout with new Norwich boss Neil Adams

Hooper is a natural goalscorer, and I'd love to see him come in.

I did note on Twitterer mentioning that should he arrive it would mean the end of the Joe Mason deal - fine by me.
