Norwich City striker Gary Hooper turned down the chance to join Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan as the club refused to give him a VIP box for games.

Having agreed to pay Hooper's wages in full on top of a £500,000 loan fee, the former Celtic man backed out of the deal, as The Owls wouldn't throw in a VIP box, worth £30,000 a year, according to the Sheffield Star.

Without the use of a VIP box for Hooper's family and friends on matchdays, the striker decided against the move and will now stay at Carrow Road.

Hooper has since tweeted the words "Not true", but doesn't indicate what this in connection with.
