Celtic fans have plenty to be happy about this weekend. They have gotten the mathematical edge back in the title race after the Rangers lost 3-2 away against Ross County. There is also a Glasgow Derby left to be played at Parkhead, the result of which is going to be vital. It is way too early to take anything for granted but it does feel like the momentum might be starting to shift.

One player who has played a part in Celtic's upturn in form recently is Adam Idah. The striker has been scoring goals since his January loan move from Norwich City and important ones as well.

Idah almost scored the winner in the Glasgow Derby at Ibrox, but Celtic could not hold on. They he came off the bench to score against St Mirren in the very next game as well.

Most supporters were not excited by the idea of the club signing Idah, who did not have a good goalscoring record at Norwich City. But he has proven a lot of people wrong over the past few months. And now, the hope is that the club are able to sign him on a permanent basis in the summer.

Celtic do not have an option to buy included in the loan deal. So, they will have to negotiate with Norwich City in the summer, if they want the striker to remain at Parkhead.

Initially, there had been suggestions that a figure around £3 million would be enough to get a deal done. But as reported by CeltsAreHere, if Celtic were to look for a permanent deal for Idah in the summer they would be looking at a transfer fee of £6 million.

That would immediately make Idah one of the most expensive signings in the club's history. But if he can finish the season strong and guide Celtic to the league title, it would be almost unthinkable for the Hoops to not go out and bring him in permanently. He has earned all the plaudits he is getting right now.
