Rhodes talks taking place - Report

19th May 2019, 18:39 by Simon Barlow

Norwich are in talks to make Jordan Rhodes their first summer signing for a 'small fee', but his wages will be significant.

The 29-year-old Scotland international striker was on loan at Carrow Road last season, providing back-up to top scorer Teemu Pukki.

The Sheffield Star report that Canaries boss Daniel Farke will open talks with Rhodes' parent club Sheffield Wednesday over a permanent switch.

And, The Sun reporter Alan Nixon adds that any deal would not cost City much in a transfer fee but Rhodes will command Premier League wages.

Speaking last month, Owls boss Steve Bruce said: "We have six strikers, if Jordan comes back in the summer we have seven. That's not healthy."

Reports in Germany also claim that Hannover 96 captain Marvin Bakalorz is weighing up interest from the Norfolk club.
