Wes Hoolahan is on a collision course with Norwich as the City midfielder looks to go against the wishes of his club and play in the upcoming internationals despite injury.
The newly promoted Canaries were hoping Hoolahan would rest during the close season to help aid his recovery from a niggling knee problem – believed to be a tendon at the back – ready for the BPL opener in August. However the midfielder has made himself available for the friendly against England and more importantly for Martin O'Neill, the Euro qualifier with Scotland in a refreshing twist on the club versus country row. Marc Wilson, Shane Long, Stephen Ward, Aiden McGeady, Jon Walters and Paul McShane all sat out of the first training session but none are thought to be carrying serious injuries. Jun 2 - 2:46 AM

Wes Hoolahan scored in the 3rd minutes against the team he wanted to move to in January but Villa came back and scored four unanswered first half goals for a 4-1 loss on the day.

While Norwich City remain outside of the relegation zone in 15th place they are only 4 points out of danger and 18th place Sunderland have two matches in hand. In addition to their fading fortunes, the Canaries face a well-documented murderer's row of opponents - Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal - to close the season. With only six matches remaining before that ugly stretch starts, Chris Houghton's men had better start picking up some points or they will be playing in the Championship next season.

Despite putting in a transfer request at Norwich, Wes Hoolahan will return to their matchday squad this weekend as they host Manchester City.

Norwich will likely play Leroy Fer in the number 10 role against City. Hoolahan wasn't allowed to join Aston Villa in the recent transfer window, but if there truly is no bad blood, he will give them a creative option as the look to avoid relegation.

Wes Hoolahan earned plaudits from manager Giovanni Trapattoni after Ireland's 3-0 win against the Faroe Islands. "He was fantastic, as he was in the last game. He has a good personality, he's creative, but he also pressed as well, which is very important."

Kudos to Hoolahan, who is showing his potential. But he's also showing his fantasy limitations. He's the guy behind the guy behind the guy. He earned Trapattoni's praise, but didn't score (Robbie Keane got a hat trick) or assist any of Ireland's goals.

Or is he? Wes Hoolahan finally makes his first Ireland start, but is put as a deep-lying playmaker, rather than his favoured number 10 role, off the the striker.

Hoolahan had a good season for Norwich, but one that didn't translate into great fantasy returns. A good showing for country could only help his chances of starting next season as one of the Canaries' star men. Having Ricky van Wolfswinkel around to finish chances should help too.
