Norwich City signing Gary Hooper admits he came close to signing for Championship outfit QPR.

QPR also had a bid accepted for Hooper accepted by Celtic and he carefully considered a move to Loftus Road.

"I was close, but I wanted to come here and play in the Premiership," Hooper said.

"I've never played in the Premiership. I've played in every league, scored in every league and the next challenge is the Premiership."
