“Everybody I have asked about Norwich says only good things. I know Gary Hooper from our time at Celtic together and he was very positive about everything at the Club when I phoned him to talk about coming here,” said Hooiveld, speaking to the club’s website.

 

“I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the players in training and fighting for a place in the team. It’s a very good squad at Norwich and has every chance of doing well this season.”

The 31-year-old has played 50 league games for Southampton after joining in 2011. He has played club level football in Holland, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Scotland during his career.
