Sheffield Wednesday-owned striker Jordan Rhodes has suggested to The Telegraph that he plans to stay at Norwich City for the rest of the season.

Rhodes joined Norwich on a season-long loan deal from Championship rivals Wednesday in the summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old striker has made nine starts and 16 substitute appearances in the Championship for the Canaries so far this season, scoring six goals in the process, according to WhoScored.

 

Former Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has been appointed the new manager of Wednesday, and he could well decide to recall the Scotland international striker in the January transfer window.

Rhodes, though, has suggested that he wants to carry on playing for Norwich until the end of the season.

Rhodes told The Telegraph: “From my point of view the idea was that I would be here for the season, that I should get the family down, get settled and chuck myself into life in Norfolk, and I’m loving every minute of it.

“It could be a special few months ahead. The manager has built a really good dressing room full of really good characters and we’ve to be where we are, so why not continue it?”

Norwich City stay

While Wednesday are having a disappointing season in the Championship, Norwich are very much in the running for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

It does make sense for Rhodes to continue to play for the Canaries until the end of the season and help the team achieve promotion to the top flight of English football.
