Up until the A-League season was disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, Hooper had scored six goals and assisted a further four helping the Wellinton Phoenix have one of the best seasons in the clubs history.
He was released by Sheffield Wednesday at the end of the 2018–19 season.

A loan move to Sheffield Wednesday fell through despite the Yorkshire club agreeing to pay Norwich £500,000 and match Hooper’s £32,000 weekly wage. Hooper denied press reports that the move collapsed due to his demand for Sheffield Wednesday to provide him with a VIP box at their stadium for his family and friends.
