Report: Gary Hooper move to Sheffield Wednesday collapsed due to VIP box row

Gary Hooper's proposed season-long loan move to Sheffield Wednesday reportedly collapsed because of the striker's request for a VIP box at Hillsborough.

Gary Hooper's deadline-day loan move from Norwich City to Sheffield Wednesday reportedly fell through because of a row over a VIP box at Hillsborough.

Wednesday reportedly agreed terms with Norwich that meant the Championship club would pay the striker's full, £32,000-a-week wages and include a £500,000 loan fee for Norwich.

However, according to The Star, Wednesday turned down the striker's request to be given a VIP box for friends and family at home matches.

Hooper is yet to start for Norwich in the Premier League this season, coming off the bench twice against Southampton and Crystal Palace.

Wednesday could try to sign the former Celtic forward again when the emergency loan window opens a week today.
