Norwich City have completed the signing of Dutch striker Sydney van Hooijdonk on a loan deal which will keep him at Carrow Road until the end of this season.

van Hooijdonk joins from Serie A side Bologna. He joined the Italian side in 2021 but has struggled to settle and has no goals to his name at the club.

The 23-year-old has had more success while out on loan in his native Netherlands though, scoring 16 goals in 35 appearances last season for Eredivisie team Heerenveen.
