It is reward for Wednesday’s patience, as they tried to sign the former Celtic and Scunthorpe United striker in August but could not thrash out a deal before the transfer deadline closed.

Hooper - who has netted 177 goals from 311 starts - joined Norwich for £5m in the summer of 2013, helping Norwich reach the Premier League last season.

The striker will wear the No 14 shirt at Hillsborough.
