Norwich City completed the loan signing of Jordan Rhodes from Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.
The forward has signed on a deal until the end of the season, with Norwich thought to be covering a large chunk of his wages.
Rhodes scored five goals for Sheffield Wednesday last season, as he struggled to fit into their style of play.
He scored against Norwich at Carrow Road in a 3-1 win for Daniel Farke’s men in the first half of the season.
But, will Rhodes be a hit for Norwich?
Here are four reasons why Jordan Rhodes is a good signing for Norwich…
He knows the area
Rhodes grew up in East Anglia, albeit in Suffolk, and knows the East Anglian derby well.
He claimed that he has been to Carrow Road and Portman Road to watch the clash, and knows what it means to both sets of supporters.
He's as proven as they come
The third top goalscorer in the Championship history, Rhodes is as proven at this level as they come.
He knows the Championship and his experience will be of the utmost importance.
He was desperate to join
Some fans have already questioned what Rhodes’ motivation will be for next season, many of whom have linked his time with Ipswich as a factor.
However, Norwich head coach Daniel Farke claimed that Rhodes was ‘desperate’ to join the club.
This can only be a good thing and it shows his motivation to do well for Norwich.
He's a unbudgeted signing
Reports have claimed that Norwich were only able to sign Rhodes due to the sell-on clause activated in Angus Gunn’s Manchester City contract when he was sold to Southampton for £10m.
Norwich have used the money from that deal to sign Rhodes on loan and cover his wages, which they were not expecting to be able to do.
