Norwich City weighs decision on £4M gem.

With Josh Sargent lately scoring goals for Norwich City and appearing to be a major asset for the East Anglian club, a decision must be made on Adam Idah, who has had a successful loan campaign for Celtic.

Norwich have put together an amazing run of performances to ensure their place in the play-offs, unless results go against them on the final day. However, being one of the most in-form teams among the four or five possibilities, promotion to the Premier League next season remains a possibility.

Looking ahead to the Canaries’ probable summer business, Idah is one player whose future remains uncertain. The 23-year-old has only made 14 appearances for Celtic since coming in the winter transfer window, but he has seven goals and two assists across all competitions, including a crucial strike in a 3-3 draw in the Old Firm Derby. This 87th-minute goal should have been enough to secure all three points, but ex-Stoke City winger Rabbi Matondo equalized in the third minute of stoppage time to save a point for Rangers.

The Republic of Ireland international acknowledged his own recent performances, saying:

“This is perhaps the most confident I’ve ever felt. People can undoubtedly sense that when I’m on the pitch and around the place, I’m playing my best, as evidenced by the goals.”

Idah’s loan term has impressed both Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and former striker John Hartson, who won three Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic. Speaking on the Go Radio Football Show, the latter had a lot to say about the 23-year-old’s impressive loan term and how much the club should spend to secure Idah permanently.

“I like him. He’s come to the club, and not many people really knew him. I think when they looked him up, they saw he was not overly great at Norwich. I think he’s got his head down. He’s scored seven goals in the time he’s been on loan.

“Some big goals as well in that period, and I think he can run in behind; he’s got lots of good attributes to his game. Somebody said to me, ‘Would Celtic pay £7 million or £8 million for him?’, I said, ‘I’m not sure Celtic are in the market to spend that much’.

“Somebody said to me, ‘What would you spend?’ I said, ‘Around £4 million’, but I think he’s somebody who has done enough to merit Celtic signing him. I think he’s one of them that can improve, and I’d like to see him get that opportunity at Celtic, I think he would be a very good signing.”

Writer’s View

It is possible to claim that Idah has a very high chance of leaving Norwich if they decide to sell in the summer. But if there aren’t enough bids, another possibility with the Canaries may be ideal for all sides. The 23-year-old has certainly improved in front of the goal.

Celtic, on the other hand, may be priced out of the deal if the fee is too high for the Scottish club. Rodgers is clearly thrilled with the Irishman, and he should be doing everything he can to make Celtic Park Idah’s permanent home.
