MetiNews.Com - The 32-year-old turned down offers in the UK to make the move.
Breaking News ! Celtic hero Gary Hooper is expected to sign a one-year deal with Indian Super League giants Kerala Blasters. The 32-year-old spent last season at Wellington Phoenix and notched eight goals in 21 appearances for the A-League outfit. Hooper’s deal with the New Zealand-based outfit expired earlier this month and the striker had several options to return to the U.K. However, reports in the sub-continent have confirmed that the ex-Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich City marksman has decided to continue his adventures abroad.
The Englishman left Celtic for Norwich in a £5million deal in 2013. Hooper struggled to impress in Norfolk but hit 31 goals in 89 games for Sheffield Wednesday despite struggling with injury.
