Celtic have agreed a deal in principle to sign Norwich City striker Adam Idah on loan for the rest of the season.

If the move is finalised before Thursday’s deadline the Republic of Ireland international will join for the rest of current campaign with no option to buy.

The 22-year-old has scored seven goals in 34 appearances for the English Championship side this season but has only started 12 games.

Idah, from Cork, made his international debut as a teenager in 2020 and has earned 22 caps for the national team.

He has scored three goals in the green of Ireland with the latest coming in a friendly draw with New Zealand in Dublin at the end of last year.

The other two strikes came against Gibraltar and the Netherlands in the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

If the move to Glasgow is completed he will compete with Kyogo Furuhashi and Hyeongyu Oh, who is currently at the Asian Cup, for the centre-forward spot as the Hoops look to win their third league title in a row and retain the Scottish Cup they also won last season.

They currently sit five points clear at the top of the Premiership, with second placed Rangers having a game in hand, with 15 games remaining.

If the Idah deals goes through he will be Celtic’s second signing of this month along with German winger Nicolas Kuhn who was brought in earlier in January.
