Norwich has completed the signing of Celtic striker Gary Hooper for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old Hooper scored 31 goals for the Scottish champions last season and has been the top scorer at the club for the last three years.

Norwich first tried to sign Hooper in January and had to fight off competition from recently relegated Queens Park Rangers to seal its seventh signing of the summer.

Hooper says ''I have scored goals at every level I have played at and the challenge of playing in the Premier League is really exciting to me. I can't wait to get down to work, to get training with the lads and working with the coaching staff.''

Hooper has signed a three-year contract, with Norwich having the option to add a further year.
