Nathan Redmond is emerging as Stoke City’s top summer transfer target, with reports of a fresh £5m enquiry for the England Under-21 international.

The Potters and Southampton were previously linked with the 20-year-old, who moved to the Canaries 12 months ago from boyhood club Birmingham, but according to the Telegraph on Monday Mark Hughes has not been put off by City’s initial reluctance to sanction a deal for the attacking midfielder.

Stoke have renewed their interest after encountering problems trying to tie up the permanent signing of Liverpool’s £7m-rated Moroccan international Oussama Assaidi.

The Telegraph report Assaidi’s wage demands could scupper a move to the Britannia after an impressive loan stint. Neil Adams wants to keep hold of his key men and Redmond played the full 90 minutes in Sunday’s 1-0 Championship defeat at Wolves. Robert Snodgrass and Ricky van Wolfswinkel are the only departures from Carrow Road this season from the current squad. Redmond has scored one goal in 35 appearances since following former boss Chris Hughton to Carrow Road.

The Birmingham-bred attacking midfielder was linked with Swansea City in the January transfer window but Redmond made it clear at the time he saw his future at Carrow Road.

  • Understand where you are coming from Mattias. I don't subscribe to the "sack Adams" view, either. And for sure some of the postings may be OTT. However, some aside, I think overall this blog gives a reasonably fair reflection of fans feelings. There are more sensible than senseless comments here in my view. It is actually healthy to have a reasonable dialogue going, with differing views. Football has always been thus. But in the past the arguments were in the pubs and clubs. Yes, there will always be some ill-considered comments to say the least. But don't get too depressed about it. There is some sanity on this blog...if you look hard enough!!!!!

  • Start of a new season and in an obvious lack of interest or activity at Portaloo Road we have one of the Prancing Donkey fans with time on his hands to be on here offering his two pennyworth! At least we have no debt, we own our ground and a wonderful top rated academy with first class facilities, a bit better than a huge debt, no money and players picked up from Freecycle and EBay! Give him some credit as his little piece had no spelling errors.

  • Not impressed, let him go. He may be young and is quick but can't cross and when he gets a whiff of goal, it goes high (IMO). Sed Jott = Ged Scott, Rob Steroo etc, an Archant wind-up merchant and male equivilent of Medusa. Stupid boy.

  • You should be smiling at your own arrogance Sad Jott. Of course we have a divine right to win in the Chumpship, and what mysterious power has appeared in your neck of the woods?

  • This makes me smile. So arrogant. It is as if you feel you have a divine right to win every game. You are very very average and have been for 3 years clinging on by the skin of your teeth to stay in the prem. It was never going to last as the club has no ambition and cannot afford to compete. Don't get me wrong. Ipswich are no better but at last the power has rightly returned to Suffolk. The bigger club with the bigger history and the far bigger trophy cabinet.

  • Mattias, I agree. Adams is "clueless", "out of his depth" etc. Sack Adams, the Board, everybody except Wes and Redmond. We're doomed. All this after ONE game in the Chumpionship. Heaven knows the misery, doom and gloom if we don't beat Watford at least by 15 goals!

  • Sorry Brew but some of the stuff im reading on here, Pinkun, Twitter & hearing on Canary Call truly makes me embarrassed to be a NCFC Fan. Whether its the constant "sack the manager, sell the players" attitude each time we lose, followed by "best thing since sliced bread" the next week or moronic fans racially abusing others from the stand, im really starting to lose the plot. No wonder players want to leave. Obviously its not everyone but I for one cant be bothered with it anymore while its like this.

  • I always try to see both sides of a debate even if I dont agree but some of the stuff im consistently seeing come out of more than a few NCFC fans this summer is blooming embarrassing. Think its time to hide in the shadows of social media. The Archant message board and twitter have dropped to the levels you'd expect on the pinkun forums. This truly is a sad day.

  • Let's get real here - Redmond is not a star player - he is quick and beyond that he is quite ordinary. He can't shoot and can't cross a ball and he does not score goals. If anyone offers more than £5 million for him take it.

  • He could be good if coached properly. But I think he's a bit dim as he doesn't seem to learn from experience. He hasn't worked out yet that to strike a ball properly you need to look at it, not look at the goal to watch your own 'worldy'. That's why he keeps hitting row Z.

  • I wasnt going to read the comments through fear they'd be the same as on social media and shock horror they are. Lets sell one of the hottest properties in english football for 5 million. People forget how young he is. If you are all so dead set on selling one of our better players may I ask the question who will replace him? Do you really have faith that this club will spend that money and replace him with something equal or better? I certainly dont. We will stumble around, say we have plenty of irons in the fire and at last minute sign someone on loan who will likely make 2 appearances and vanish or even worse sign nobody! Come on guys. Really starting to worry about this club when im the only one trying to be positive.

  • Im not even going to read the already posted comments as, if there anything like those on twitter I think my head may pop. All ive seen on social media is "sell him, he cant cross" & comments of that sort. So narrow minded its unreal! Yes lets sell him for a tiny 5 million and replace him with....likely nothing, knowing how the club appears to work in the transfer market. Brilliant idea! Its always blow up first, think later with most NCFC fans these days. Redmond still a key player in my eyes and one of the hottest properties in english football. People forget how young he is, full of potential. Other clubs would laugh in our face reading and hearing what some 'fans' say regarding him (and other players to be fair). Ref to Wolves, he wasnt brilliant. Was he played in an area that was a benefit to him and team? No. Did he snatch at a very good chance to score and hit it high, wide and ugly? Yes. Does that mean we should kick him out the club never to be seen again for such a low fee? Give me a break!

  • A player whose progress stalled and then went into reverse under Hughton. Can Neil do anything about that? If not, take the money from somebody who can. More than £5m though.

  • Even though he has not been a big star for NCFC, he has showed great form for England and the future over the past season in the England junior side. Based on this potential and his age, I hope we hold out for aa lot more than 5M.

  • Wherever he goes he needs to be coached better, to be played as a wide attacker and be playing with better quality players from whom he can learn. I fear here at Norwich he will not progress so good luck to Nathan when he moves on.

  • It would be a good move for Redmond. He needs to be amongst better players than this City bunch to improve his game. Mc Nally and the board would be happy. More money to stuff in the bank.

  • I have been concerned for a long-time that Nathan Redmond may not live up to his potential. Having said that, he has been played out of position far too often. Who amongst the coaches and senior players is going to take him to one side and give him the advice and support he needs to become the class player we all want him to be?
