Norwich City are reportedly keen to bring Jordan Rhodes back to Carrow Road next season - on a permanent deal.

The striker spent the season at City on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

Now, claims The Sun, City want him back.

You may also want to watch:

Rhodes started just nine Championship games but came off the bench 27 times and scored six goals - playing a major part in City's Championship title triumph.

The 29-year old was forced to play second fiddle to the Championship's top scorer, Teemu Pukki, but drew high praise from head coach Daniel Farke for his attitude.

Rhodes, whose career started at Ipswich, had successful spells at Huddersfield and Blackburn before big money moves to Middlesbrough, who paid £9m for him, and Wednesday, who paid £10m for his services two years ago.

Verdict: Farke has praised him for his attitude - which was clear to see for all City fans - but whether he fits the bill in the top flight is another thing. At 29 he may be a bit on the senior side, especially if there is a big fee involved, and Wednesday will want to recoup some of their substantial investment. One of those players who is 'good to have around the place'.
