Report: Norwich reject Celtic’s £4m opening offer for Idah

Norwich City have rejected Celtic’s opening offer for Adam Idah. The Scottish Champions launched a £4m bid for the Irish Internationalist earlier today but the bid appears to have already been knocked back.

According to Football Scotland, Celtic made the offer of £4m with add-ons attached but the Championship side have made it clear that they won’t sell him unless they get a good price.

Norwich appear willing to do a deal if an appropriate offer comes in for the striker but, as of yet, Celtic haven’t matched this. The report does say, however, that Norwich have not stated a figure that they would allow the player to leave for as they would rather Johannes Hoff Thorup assessed him during pre-season.

Celtic know what Idah can bring to the team and will likely be preparing another offer. It is clear that the manager wants a deal to be done and the player’s social media account seems to suggest he is favourable about a return, too.

Hopefully Celtic can get a bid together in the next few days that will tempt Norwich into entering serious discussions about a deal rather than simply rejecting their offer. Idah has a long contract but would rather play Champions League football than turning out for a toiling side in the Championship.

    4m, if true, seems a complete low balling waste of everyone’s time. We know the market, we know the likely value range, and we know the risk of dithering. Seal the deal. Get the player. Back the boss.

  2. 4million for someone who will sit on the bench for the majority of games is a chronic waste of cash.
