'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Adams: Hooper Stays


Last week, City Boss Neil Adams said that he'd spoken to Gary Hooper and explained he saw him as an important part of City's tilt at promotion and he was quoted as saying that Hooper was 'happy with that.'

It seems that this wasn't clear enough for some as speculation has continued, mostly via the Daily Mail which was then followed by the rest of the tabloids, who love a band wagon.

'A transfer request from Gary Hooper hasn't happened. I've spoken to Gary - he's a goal scorer and we need goal scorers,' Adams told BBC Radio Norfolk.

'He's part of a strike line-up that will be competing for places. I spoke to all the players at the end of last season,' he said.

'Virtually to a man they were all committed to the cause. They and I are realistic enough to recognise that after relegation there are offers for players. As yet there have been no offers put to me.

'If offers are ones you can't turn down or players want to leave we have to accept that, but I'm more focused on bringing players in.'

Adams also spoke about recent speculation surrounding a supposed bid for Blackburn's Jordan Rhodes.

'There's nothing in that. Obviously he's a fantastic player, he scores goals for fun. But he's not somebody we've made an offer for,' he added.

'And couldn't probably afford' he didn't add.

Nice to hear this sort of stuff though and let's hope 'virtually' everyone is still there next season.
