Jordan Rhodes' arrival from Sheffield Wednesday will delight at least one Norwich City player.

Rhodes' year-long loan deal was announced on Tuesday, less than a fortnight after another ex-Owl became a Canary.

That man - Ben Marshall - was a teammate of Rhodes for two-and-a-half seasons at Blackburn Rovers.

And, when asked by Sky Sports' EFL Weekly podcast early last year to name his best friend in football, it was the striker's name that was volunteered by Marshall.

"I'd probably say Jordan Rhodes," replied the winger. "I've kept close with him since our time at Blackburn. We've kept in touch - I went to his wedding and stuff. You probably won't meet a nicer guy in football."

But Marshall isn't the only ex-teammate ready to greet Rhodes at Norwich, with his respective former Blackburn and Middlesbrough colleagues, Grant Hanley and James Husband, also on the books at Carrow Road.

Unlike Marshall, Rhodes' struggled for form at Sheffield Wednesday and he - along with his parent club and Norwich - will hope that their reunion can inspire the 28-year-old back to his best.

Is Norwich a good move for the Wednesday striker?
