Ask anyone what they love most about living in Norfolk, and they will probably cite the coast, the rolling countryside or the historic cathedrals and churches.

However, Norwich City winger Onel Hernández gave a rather different answer when asked to talk about life in his adopted city for an interview in the club's official programme.

The Cuban-born winger revealed that he just can't get enough of his local Argos store, while H&M, Morrisons, Costa and Boots also got an honourable mention.

Hernández, 25, moved to Norwich from German club Eintracht Braunschweig last January and has spent most of his life in Germany after leaving Cuba at a young age.

“I love the city,” Hernández said. “I like that I live next to the stadium and next to me is a Morrisons which is good, so I can buy my food.

“And also, I’d never seen an Argos before in my life. I walked inside and saw the catalogue with things you can order.

“You can order bikes, TVs – we don’t have this in Germany. Argos has everything, and I’ve never seen this in my life before.

“When I need something, I buy it from Argos. I live in a perfect area. There’s H&M, Costa and Boots nearby – it’s great. Chapelfield is very cool as well. We have a lot of restaurants and I love this city.”

Following the comments, Argos were quick to get in touch with Hernández on Twitter and even promised to send him "some canary-coloured products" from his favourite store.

Hernández himself saw the funny side, and posted a brilliant mock image of him celebrating a goal complete with shopping bags in hand!
