Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes wants to join Norwich City this summer.

The 29-year-old spent last season on loan with the Canaries and is keen to join them on a permanent basis, as per a report by the Pink ‘Un.

Rhodes was part of Daniel Farke’s side who won promotion to the Premier League last season.  He scored nine goals in all competitions for the Carrow Road side.

Sheffield Wednesday are open to selling him this summer to help balance the books.

Rhodes had spells at Barnsley and Ipswich Town as a youngster before he was snapped up by Huddersfield Town in 2009. He spent four seasons with the Terriers and scored 87 goals in 148 games before he signed for Blackburn Rovers for £8 million.

Rhodes spent three and a half years at Ewood Park and scored 85 goals in 169 games. He was then signed by Middlesbrough in February 2016 and helped them gain promotion to the Premier League. However, he chances were limited in the top flight and he was loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday.

Rhodes joining Norwich this summer would suit both parties. He would offer Farke’s side another option in attack in the top flight in what promises to be a tough campaign for the Canaries.
