Country Rhodes, take us home

Country Rhodes, take us home Jordan Rhodes has proved a fan favourite this season but would be set for a lack of Premier League minutes (if he were to sign permanently), with Norwich potentially signing a forward to bolster their options. This could show Rhodes the door back to Sheffield Wednesday, with little chance of him returning. But many fans want Rhodes to stay at Norwich, saying that he knows he is a back up, 3rd choice. Twitter: @FootyAccums Always good for the Championship and needs a step up but never good enough for the Prem. Like Jordan Rhodes was for years.

Norwich have been told that they will have to pay £7m if they want to sign Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes this summer.

According to The Pink’Un, Sheffield Wednesday are not willing to renegotiate the fee agreed in Rhodes’ loan deal.

The report claims that Norwich agreed a £7m option to sign Rhodes permanently, if they chose to, at the end of his loan spell.

However, Norwich are now trying to broker a lower fee, which Sheffield Wednesday are not prepared to do.

Sheffield Wednesday are said to be keen to sell Rhodes this summer and are hoping that other clubs enter the race in an attempt to get his wages off the books.

Rhodes scored nine goals in all competitions for Norwich this season, but only made nine Championship starts due to the incredible form of Teemu Pukki – who ended the campaign on 30 goals.

The Scottish international wants to stay in Norwich and is said to be happy after settling in Norfolk over the course of his loan spell.

Rhodes alternatives Norwich could target.
Norwich City’s planning for the Premier League is already well underway, with one new signing in the door. The Canaries have signed Patrick Roberts on loan from Manchester City for the campaign, following spells in Spain and Scotland for the winger. Another player Norwich have been heavily linked with is Jordan Rhodes on a permanent deal. Rhodes spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan to Norwich from Sheffield Wednesday, scoring nine goals in all competitions for the club – despite playing second fiddle to Teemu Pukki at Carrow Road.
