Report discloses how much Sheffield Wednesday are paying for Gary Hooper

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Gary Hooper on loan from Norwich City until January.

According to a report in the Sheffield Telegraph, Sheffield Wednesday are paying all of Gary Hooper's £32,000-per-week wages during his loan spell at Hillsborough.

Hooper has signed on loan at Wednesday from Norwich City until January, and as well as paying for the striker's salary, the Owls have also paid £500,000 as a loan fee.

It makes the move a fairly expensive one, but Wednesday will hope that their investment pays dividends over future weeks.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side have been on the lookout for a potent finisher all season, and there is a hope that Hooper can fill that void.

The former Celtic man has been a proven goalscorer in the Football League, and there are hopes that he can fire Wednesday up the Championship table.

The Owls are currently sat in ninth place, and on a nine-game unbeaten run in all competitions, but they have made no secret of their desire to reach the play-offs by the end of the campaign.

Hooper’s first match could come at the weekend, when Wednesday face Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough on Saturday.
