Hooper has been linked with a summer move away from Glanford Park after netting 30 goals for the Iron last season.

It is claimed QPR offered around £1million for the striker but Scunthorpe rejected the approach from their Championship rivals.

Paladini said: "We made a bid for Hooper but it was rejected. We were told that he is not for sale."

Scunthorpe signed Hooper, 21, from Southend United for £175,000 in July last year.
