Former Norwich City stalwart and current Stoke assistant boss Mark Bowen has admitted the Potters are sweet on Nathan Redmond.

Canaries’ boss Neil Adams made it clear earlier this week it will take a ‘mouthwatering’ bid to prise the England Under-21 international away from Carrow Road.

Stoke and Southampton have both been heavily linked with a summer move for the 20-year-old and Bowen confirmed prior to the Potters’ departing for a pre-season training camp in Germany he is on their transfer radar.

“I don’t like talking too much about players at other clubs, but he is someone we’ve admired for a while,” he said. “We certainly feel like we haven’t finished recruiting yet, and we’ll try to get one or two more into the building.”

Stoke are believed to be closing in on the signing of Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi for an initial £4.5m and have also held talks with Barcelona midfielder Bojan.

Adams made it clear Redmond is part of his Championship plans after the youngster scored in the midweek 6-1 friendly win at Braintree.

He said. “There will be plenty of bids and we will knock them all back as best we can unless and until it becomes like the Robert Snodgrass situation, when it reaches a point you have to do business.”

Redmond was part of the 24-man squad who flew out to Italy on Friday for a three-game tour.

  • Be fair Derek - if you were a brilliant footballer, would you even consider Stoke as a club? My realistic brain tells me that they are a team of kick and rush thugs - have been ever since Tony Pulis was their manager. (Now he's an anagram - spiny lout or lousy pint - take your pick!). Wonder if Ged Margin knows that other Ip5w1ch troll Ged (Steroo).

  • @ MWBLJ - don't know if you're the only fan to agree with diggerman (is that an anagram?), as nobody has responded to any of his comments. As I said on another board - nobody's listening. He's a troll - fol-de-rol !

  • Am I the only fan who agrees with diggerman? This guy was next to useless last season, how many assists did he have? How many goals did he score? He can't cross the ball, he is greedy and shoots instead of passing, people seem to sometimes confuse pace with ability!!! Did any of you actually see this guy play for 90 minutes last season???Sure the guy is fast, but he's rubbish. I would sell him for £4 million and turn cartwheels, people lets get real

  • Hi crab, I was being ironic. It's a nothing news article. My comment doesn't deny space to anyone else, when we get a news worthy article I will as usual join in with the discussion.

  • Addams is guilty of unsettling this player by saying a 'mouthwatering offer' will buy him, he is in the shop window and open to offers, as are many other players, and until the club state a player is not for sale at any price the speculation will continue !

  • When the Archie hacks have no news to tell us why on earth do they publish these totally non stories that only publicise other clubs trying to unsettle our players? Leave it out, we don't need it!

  • A winger who can't cross a ball, who shots wildly when he should pass-get rid I say!
