Adam Idah enjoyed a fantastic loan spell at Celtic. When he arrived in the winter from Norwich City, there were a lot of doubts around the Republic of ireland international. His goalscoring record with the Canaries had been nothing to write home about and what the Hoops needed was someone who would find the back of the net consistently, with Kyogo struggling to produce his best form since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as manager.

Idah proved a lot of people wrong during his short stint at Celtic. Despite not starting regularly, he proved himself as an important contributor in front of goal, scoring 9 goals.

They were vital goals as well. One of them was a fantastic finish against the Rangers at Ibrox. And Idah's last goal of the season proved to be the Scottish Cup winner at Hampden Park.

In a short amount of time, Idah had incredible impact at Celtic and became a fan favourite as well. Thus, it is understandable why most supporters when the club to sign him on a permanent basis this summer from Norwich City, although reaching an agreement could be complicated after his good form and a change in managers at Carrow Road.

Michael McGovern came through the ranks at Celtic and he was also a teammate of Idah at Norwich City. As reported by the Daily Record, the goalkeeper said to MailSport:

"Having spoken to Adam, the daily interaction he’s had with fans in Glasgow is nothing like what he was used to in Norwich. The people are just different. Norwich people are reserved and keep themselves to themselves.

“In Glasgow they’re more open and more likely to come up and approach you. It’s a different culture. So that has been a big change for Adam.

“And I know that he has loved it up here because I’ve spoken to him regularly. I’m sure there’s a big part of him that wants to come back to Celtic next term.

“There are so many factors. The two clubs have to agree a fee then there are wages to sort out. It’s complicated. But I know he loved playing for the football club so Celtic have a great starting point."

Idah returning to Celtic might be the best for all parties involved. Now, it remains to be seen a transfer fee can be agreed, as the Hoops did not have a buyout clause included in the loan deal.

Initially, when Idah had arrived at Celtic, there had been reports that Norwich City would be willing to accept a transfer bid of around £3 million in the summer. But now, it looks like it will take a figure double of that if the Hoops are to have any chance of signing him.
