Norwich new boy Hooper wants England call-up

Gary Hooper is determined to force his way into the England squad now he is in the Premier League.

The 25-year old striker has joined Norwich City from Celtic for £5million and is looking to take his prolific Scotland form into England's top flight so he can turn the heads of the Three Lions coaching staff.

"I wanted to play in the Premier League and to try to get an England call-up. I think there's a good chance of that," he said.

"You don't really get a look in up there. Down here you've got more chance. The main thing is playing, getting on the pitch first, and doing what I do.

"To play for your country is anyone's dream, but my first dream is to play in the Premier League.

"I had the Champions League at Celtic and they wanted to keep me. It was a tough decision, but I'm here now and I'm happy."
