Nicknamed the ‘Irish Messi’; it is fair to say Wes Hoolahan is a firm fans favourite down at Carrow Road, as well as being the club’s current longest-serving player.

The 33-year-old; who joined Norwich City back in June 2008 from League One outfit Blackpool for an undisclosed fee, has gone onto feature 280 times for the Canaries ever since, scoring 45 goals and providing 62 assists in the process.

Hoolahan, who has 27 international caps for the Republic of Ireland and is expected to feature for his home country in this summer’s Euro 2016 Championships in France, has found the back of the net four times in 26 outings as Norwich battle to preserve their Premier League status after only achieving promotion back into the top-flight last May.

Alex Neil’s side currently sit just one point above the division’s bottom three following their crucial 3-0 defeat to the hands of relegation rivals Sunderland on Saturday, with only four games remaining of the 2015-16 campaign.
