Norwich City will be hoping they have finally solved the goalscoring issues that undermined their campaign last season with the signing of Jordan Rhodes on a season-long loan from Sheffield Wednesday.
The 28-year-old has shown in the past that he knows the way to goal during spells at Huddersfield Town, Blackburn and Middlesbrough before losing his way at Wednesday last season.
City fans will be desperate for the striker to hit the ground running after completing the club’s sixth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Emi Buendia, Moritz Leitner, Teemu Pukki, Ben Marshall and Felix Passlack.
Ipswich fans will also have a keen interest in his progress at City with the player coming through the academy at Portman Road before being sold on the cheap by then manager Roy Keane.
It is a move that has come back to haunt the Blues on several occasions and Norwich fans will be hoping Rhodes can help City continue their hoodoo over their biggest rivals.
