Republic of Ireland U21 striker Adam Idah has secured a new contract with newly promoted Premier League club Norwich City.
The Cork man has signed a new four year deal with the Canaries while he has also linked up with the club’s first team where he will wear the number 35 shirt for the coming season.
Idah has impressed at both U18 and U23 level with the club and he scored 13 goals in all competitions last year.
“I’m delighted to sign a new deal here,” Idah told the club’s website.
“The moment they offered me a new contract, I knew straight away that I wanted to sign it.
“I’ve loved every minute here so I’m delighted. My form last season was great and I’ve worked very hard to get myself to where I am now.
“I’m delighted to be in the position I am now. Last year helped me a lot to get me to this position.
“There are lots of people who have helped me. The staff have been great to me and even through the tougher times, they’ve helped me through it.”
Idah has already trained with the first-team as the squad began their pre-season preparations on Monday.
“It’s been tough, I won’t lie,” he added. “But I think I’m slowly getting used to things now as it’s already been three days.
“Wednesday was my first day on the pitch and it was tough but I’ve been enjoying it.”
Idah was most recently involved with the Republic of Ireland U21s in the Toulon Tournament where they reached the semi-finals. The promising striker scored two goals en route to their eventual exit at the hands of Brazil.
“After Toulon, I got given the news that I would be training with the first-team. I was told it would be for the first few days but the other day, I was told it would be permanently.
“I’ve definitely had to pinch myself at points. A week ago, when I was at home and packing my bags to come here, it didn’t seem real.
“Coming into the changing room a couple of days ago was surreal, but I’m very happy to be back now.”
