IRELAND star Wes Hoolahan says he’s dreaming of a return to the English top flight with Norwich City.

With two games left in their season, the Canaries are still in contention for automatic promotion and the Championship title, Hoolahan’s side three points behind leaders Watford, with their remaining games are against strugglers Rotherham United and Fulham.

 “It’s what you dream of, getting back to the Premier League,” said Hoolahan, who turns 33 next month.

“That’s where you want to be playing as it’s the best league in the world. To achieve that would cap an amazing year for us.

“I was fortunate enough to score our first goal back in the Premier League on the opening day of the season against Wigan so that was a real highlight for me.”

Hoolahan was this week named in the Championship’s team of the decade.
