Adam Idah signs new Norwich City contract and joins up with first-team squad

4 July 2019

Norwich City are delighted to announce that Adam Idah has signed a new contract with the Club until the summer of 2023.

The young striker moved to the Canaries in 2017 and has spent the past two seasons playing with the Club’s Under-18s and Under-23s sides.

After an impressive scoring record since joining, including 13 goals in all competitions last year, Idah has been rewarded with a new long-term deal.

Speaking to, Idah said: “I’m delighted to sign a new deal here. 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.”

As well as signing a new four-year contract, Idah has joined up with Daniel Farke’s first-team squad for the upcoming 2019-20 season and will take the number 35 shirt.

The 18-year-old has already been put through his paces by the City Head Coach and his coaching staff after the team returned for pre-season training 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 said he was given the news about making the step-up after playing in the Toulon Tournament for the Republic of Ireland Under-21s.

He scored two goals in the prestigious development competition as Ireland made it through to the semi-finals.

“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.”
