Norwich’s New Manager to Assess Striker’s Future

Celtic’s bid to secure the services of Adam Idah may face a setback as Norwich City’s newly appointed manager, Johannes Hoff Thorup, expresses his desire to evaluate the young striker during the pre-season period. The 23-year-old, who has recently been on loan at Celtic, is set to be closely scrutinized at Carrow Road by Thorup, who took the reins at the end of May.

Idah a “Top Target” for Celtic

Following a successful loan spell at Celtic in the latter half of the 2023-24 season, Idah has caught the attention of Celtic’s manager Brendan Rodgers, becoming a “top target” for the team’s summer acquisitions. The forward’s performance has not gone unnoticed, with insiders revealing that he is high on the recruitment list for the Glasgow-based club.

Glasgow Giants’ Patience Wearing Thin

Despite the interest in retaining Idah’s talents, Celtic is not prepared to wait indefinitely for Norwich to decide on the player’s future. With ambitions to secure early signings to bolster the squad for the upcoming Scottish Premiership and Champions League campaigns, Rodgers is eager to finalize his team roster.

Idah’s Impactful Loan at Celtic

During his loan at Celtic, Idah made a significant contribution to the team’s success, appearing 19 times and starting in seven games. His impressive tally of nine goals and two assists played a pivotal role in Celtic’s league and cup double, including a memorable winner against Rangers in the Scottish Cup final last month.

International Recognition and Club Commitment

Adam Idah’s prowess on the field has also been recognized at the international level, earning him 25 caps for the Republic of Ireland and a goal in his latest match against Hungary. At the club level, Idah has made 34 appearances for Norwich in the first half of the 2023-24 campaign, with a record of seven goals and one assist. The striker is contracted with Norwich until June 2028, leaving Celtic waiting to see if they can secure his signature for the long term.
