Norwich City striker Gary Hooper has avoided serious injury.

The £5million summer signing from Celtic required scans on his knee and shin after being carried off on a stretcher during Saturday's defeat of Panathinaikos.

Manager Chris Hughton told the club's website: "Both the X-ray and the scan are fine and confirm there is no fracture or any other problem which might indicate a long-term injury.

"There is still some bruising Gary suffered from the knock and he will continue to be monitored and assessed over the days ahead."
