Norwich City’s wide player Nathan Redmond has been linked with Premier League duo Stoke City and Southampton.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The England under 21 international is being touted with a swift top flight return, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph, who claim Redmond would be available for £6m.

The 20-year-old made 34 Premier League appearances for the Canaries last season after signing a four-year contract following his move from hometown club Birmingham 12 months ago.

The Potters will reportedly switch their attentions to Redmond should they fail to complete a permanent move for Oussama Assaidi, who spent last season on loan from Liverpool.

New Saints’ chief Ronald Koeman is looking to rebuild his Saints squad after the summer sales of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw this summer. Ex-City loan keeper Fraser Forster has been strongly linked with an £8m close-season move to St Mary’s from Celtic, which would re-unite him with England goalkeeping coach Dave Watson who left Carrow Road last week.

  • Redmond was another victim of Hughton's inability to use attacking flair effectively. Hope he stays otherwise next season we could be watching on in envy as he pulls apart PL defences.

  • Redmond has caught the eye of Roy Hodgson with his hat-trick for the under 21s.Like Hooper, he will be unable to realise the ambition to play for his country in the championship and,if it is £6 million,there's a nice profit on the deal with Birmingham.The EPL,or its' euro equivalent, is an essential ingredient for any player with international aspirations.

  • MB hear what you are saying about the board sleep walking out of the EPL. I can only think of the analogy over here where the auto industry thinks making a premium vehicle is bolting a few more accessories on the car. Our board thought buying a few more expensive players and paying higher salaries made us an EPL team. No thoughts about an overall balanced squad and rise in standard of the whole. I also understand that many supporters may be happy with a reasonable championship team. However I want to see us aiming high all the time - Europe in 5 years should be our goal, and this takes new ownership and board.

  • Redmond is young and still developing. He will likely be a better player this season than last. He player a lot more games than expected because of injuries which exposed some weaknesses in his game but he will improve. Because he is young need to factor in there is more potential for his price to increase as he develops so selling for 6m when we don't need the money is ridiculous. Also he has expressed desire to play for us. It would be crazy for us to sell Redmond, Fer, Olsson who all seem happy to stay here. Snodgrass had 1 year so made sense for the club to sell. If a massive offer comes in for Hooper and he wants away then maybe you consider it but even then I would tell him tough, you are staying here for at least 1 more season and then we can discuss

  • I also tend to agree with AIG, the much maligned Robert Snodgrass score a lot more goals and had more assists than Redmond, I can't see why Redmond would be worth more than he. On the other hand, looking at some of the stupid money that's being talked about other players in the Championship perhaps we should give him a £12 million tag and see if anyone's daft enough to pay iy? Are you listening 'Arry? We have a ready made replacement in Murphy who in the long term will be a much better player.

  • Agreed Mr 333, if McCormack is worth £11 mil then 6 would seem a pittance for Redmond. Unless as I said previously they would like to throw in Crouch. I imagine the prospect of Laferty and Crouch would have a few championship central defenders running for the hills!

  • I tend to agree with A I G.. Redmond flattered to deceive, and surely the key proposition for us is who might we buy with the 6810 million we might get and does that increasedecrease our squad quality overall. The other issue is the bringing on of younger talent like Josh Murphy. Taking Michegan's point there are worse things than a successful time in the championship, as supporters rather than directors we should consider how much pleasure (as opposed to money) we have had the last 3 years. A year or two winning games and always being in with a chance would not be unwelcome surely?

  • If we want to be contending for promotion come the end of the next season then its players like Redmond we need to keep - however large the carrot being dangled in front of our Board. It's players like Redmond, Hooper, Ruddy, Fer, Olsson, that are going to be the difference.

  • Seems about right, Michigan. I wonder how the statistics look for another "get lucky event", a la Lambo? The most baffling thing is the way the Board sleep-walked us out of The Prem in such a feeble, directionless way. They allowed Hughton to splash out on a "Club-record signing" (yawn) and watched on while he drained every drop of juice from all but Robert and the admirably stoic Olsson - PotS by miles IMHO. Timbo, I hope you`re not demonstrating your lack of class & education with that `butend` quip ;-) Oi vey, Maria!

  • Michigan I fear there could be a grain of truth in what you are saying as previously the board were harping on about financial stability. I will hold final judgement until I see how the start of the season pans out. With regards to Redmond, he is still developing and it would be good to see him here for another season but if he goes it needs to be for reasonable money and I agree with malaga there needs to be a sell on clause; something we used to be good at doing in days gone by. As for all the internal appointments, in the good old days a certain North West club in red used to do it all the time and had unprecedented success, then it changed, so if Liverpool could make it work why can't we - just a thought.

  • If we do let our top players go and bring in good money for them, then I think it fits in with what many think about the board wanting a relatively risk free longterm stay in the championship with 20,000+ crowds at home games bringing in reasonable money for them, vs the risk around splashing out high fees, salaries, and ground improvements for a real shot back in the EPL. Another run for a couple of years like we had under PL would then be even more icing on the cake for a board with no real longterm EPL plan or desire. Sorry, but this is all I can see so far.

  • Well I must be the odd one out with Redmond then! All I ever see from him is eye catching tricks and flicks but no end product, time after time. Cutting in from left wing, he can only shoot near post, which 99% will be covered by the keeper. Going far post, he cannot wrap is foot around the ball and curl it in; instead he goes for power time after time, with it consistently ballooning high and wide and invariably ending up in the proverbial row Z. His crossing? Don't get me started! As for the notion that he is too good for the Championship, well 2 goals in a 46 game season for a successful play-off team just 1 year ago does not suggest that to me. Over-rated and frustrating for me, until he can prove to me otherwise. You can pay a certain amount for potential, which yes he does have, but until he has that final product, and I'm unconvinced it's coming anytime soon, anything over £6m is pure fantasy IMHO.

  • Seriously though, why is it that other clubs raise the price of someone they are not really wanting to sell until a mug comes along but Norwich seem to be more of a benevolent society by starting at a reasonable figure and easily settling for a much lower figure. Redmond may not have progressed as much last season as he could have done but how much of that was due to the manager and his system of playing or non playing. Not sure if system is the right word either.

  • The statement was made that we have no need to sell any players! Snodgrass was in his last year and was a bit of a risk to keep so at 8 million it made sense to let him go. Leeds didn't want McCormack to go so they put a silly price on him and a mug came along. Blackburn did the same with Rhodes but so far no mug has come along so with Southampton awash with money we should do the same and yes if you want him, 12 million it is! At the end of the day papers have to be sold and we have the same old stories on here day after day but the main papers cannot do that so they have a bit of gossip, a few rumours, something made up, it goes around, gets people talking and sells papers! No news ever comes out of Carrow Road until the deal is done. Forget this one.

  • Calm down one and all. As Paulwho said, there are plenty of weeks to go before the transfer deadline closes and there are also plenty of journalists wanting to fill column inches. There will be lots of speculation to come. Norwich have been linked with several in and out but who saw the Grabban and Lafferty deals ahead of time?

  • It would be very disappointing if Redmond was to leave. He should have a big future and even if the fee wasn't as big as we'd like or expect, there should be a large sell-on clause based on international appearances etc. Regarding the fee quoted, I don't think it is so much that Redmond has been under-valued as Snodgrass being over-priced. But that was a good bit of business and I had no qualms about seeing him go. I would be more disappointed to see young, pacy, players like Redmond being sold. However we have to accept that having lost our Prem League status some departures will be inevitable. Let's face it, even Southampton finishing as high as they did, haven't been able to hold onto their best players. They must be cash-rich so could afford to push the boat out for recruits.

  • Last month Nathan spoke publicly about how happy he was at Norwich, that he felt a responsibility to help lead the fight to regain prem status and said he is not looking to move. So if City sell him its none of the players doing. However, if the club do decide to cash in, I agree with other points here - if Snoddy goes for almost £8M then Nathan is easy a double figures transfer in the £11-12M bracket
