Hooper targets Barcelona move

Celtic striker Gary Hooper has ambitions to play for Barcelona but he is happy to see out his Parkhead contract.


Hooper, who scored 29 goals last season, has two years left on his deal but his agent has been in talks with the club this week over improved terms.

The 24-year-old has been overlooked by England despite his prolific form and has been linked with Southampton, who are managed by his former Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins.

Hooper hopes to play in the Premier League one day but is not agitating for a move.

He told the Scottish Sun: "There's no rush as I am happy at Celtic. We have the Champions League next season which I am looking forward to. We have the qualifiers to come and at the moment I am looking to my two years at Celtic.

"But one day Premier League. One day England. And then one day, Barcelona. That is the aim for me. We are seeing where these contract talks go but as far as I am concerned I have two years left at Celtic."
