Striker Mooney to stay at Norwich

Reading have agreed to let Norwich keep striker David Mooney on loan until the end of the season.

The striker has scored twice in just three starts since joining the Canaries, and told BBC Radio Norfolk he wants to stay at Carrow Road.

"About a week or two ago I signed the forms to agree to stay. I'm hoping it will be sorted and I can stay.

"I always knew I could play at this level, I just needed a chance. Luckily the gaffer has given me that," he said.

The Canaries won three of the four games in which Mooney was involved in March, leaving the club in a much healthier position in the Championship relegation mix.

There are just six games remaining for Norwich to retain Championship status, and Mooney admits there is plenty of dressing room talk over how many points they need to avoid relegation.

"You don't really want to be talking about things like that, you could be setting yourself targets that become unachievable.

"But there has been a bit of talk about needing maybe two wins out of the next three games, but we'll just have to wait till Saturday and see what we get," he said.

It's unbelievable, the support down here is frightening

Norwich striker David Mooney

Saturday's home match with Sheffield Wednesday has been declared a sell-out, something that has astonished Mooney.

"It's unbelievable, the support down here is frightening, when I was at Reading they were getting 18,000 and they were top of the Championship.

"You come here, we're at the bottom but there's 25,000 week-in, week-out, it's just amazing," he said.
