Interest in Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond appears to be increasing, after the Canaries reportedly rejected offers from Stoke City and Southampton for the 20-year-old.

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

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the two Premier League clubs both offered around £3.5million for Redmond but were told that City will not accept less than £6m.

The newspaper suggest that Everton and Swansea City have also shown ‘tentative interest’ in the England Under-21 ace.

Redmond joined City from Birmingham City for a reported fee of £3.2million last summer, joining up with his former manager Chris Hughton.

He showed plenty of promise but in 39 appearances in all competitions only found the back of the net once, scoring the winner in a 1-0 home win against Southampton in August.

The winger put his name back in the shop window in May though, when he scored a hat-trick for the England Under-21s in a European Championship qualifier against Wales in Swansea.

Do you think the Canaries should let Redmond leave if they receive an offer of £6m? Leave your comments below.

  • Each to their own but Redmond is regarded one of the hottest up and coming players. Personally I think we'd be fools to cash in on cheap. If its a silly money offer then maybe but while his decision making needs work, hes VERY young still. Just mature beyond his years. These things can be worked on. He has raw pace and a youthful outlook to go and run at players. Something we lack. At times last season he literally turned WORLD CLASS defenders inside out. Cant wait to see what he does in the championship!

  • id cash in on Redmond, didnt impress me im afraid , plenty of pace , but when it comes to delivering a half-decent shot , or finding a team-mate , found wanting too often , even allowing for his age

  • Agree with the poor tactics last term point. Wonder if games had only lasted seventy minutes would NCFC still be in the prem? There often seemed to be a lack of ability to concentrate for the full match and it would be interesting to know how many were lost in either the first ten minutes or the last ten.....

  • Not so much about players on there own but more what a better manager can get from them. Hughton has all the tools but didnt know how to use them last season. Kept trying to make them something they were not. (RVW\Hooper as target men on the half way line dealing with hoof ball tactics from defenders lacking leadership). Thats my take on it anyway buddy.

  • If the current players at City who were there last season were not good enough to keep City in the Prem. why have they suddenly become players that the Prem. clubs want to purchase? Do other managers think that with proper development they will become Prem. players in time. If that is the case, hopefully our new backroom staff can improve their play and they will be of good use to City, if they do not develop and City do not go up this season then best sell the lot and use the money to give fans more comfortable seats.

  • The report on Redmond must be wrong.The club would be crazy to consider any amount under 10 million.The lad has huge potential.Technically he is very good and his tremendous speed could make him a top player.The club made many mistakes last year in the assessment of players, another error would be unforgiveable

  • All speculation especially the numbers quoted. Every player has his price but his is far higher than 3.5m but not sure what it is in today's climate. I was dead in line behind his goal against Soton - super strike and didn't imagine it would be the only one last season. Getting a bit fed up with all slagging the board for 'not putting a figure' on each and all. How do we know? McCormack, we were told by his board was going nowhere. Talk is easy.

  • WHY do Cardiff slap a silly price on a player they want to keep but good old Norwich say every player has his price, yes its true but it encourages interest that in turn unsettles the player. Our weak board make me sick at times

  • Hate to say it, but if any top footballer has any sense he'll get a clause in his contract when he first signs, that if the team is relegated + there's an offer of whatever million, he's automatically free to talk to the other club. If that's the case then there's nothing NCFC can do to stop players leaving !

  • Here come all the vultures looking trying to poach our best players!!!...Well, we knew it was gonna happen, but £3.5 million is derisory...we don't need to sell anybody, and I'd slap a 10-15 million pound price tag on each of our topseniormost valuable players...and test Premier League clubs resolve?...(I mean, Snodgrass was a good bit of business for a player with a year or less on his contract, and set's a benchmark in my eye...if you go on the premise of £6-7 milion for each year left on their contracts...that's what clubs should have to pay)...so if anybody else is wanted...Premier League clubs will have to pay top wack...and why shouldn't they...If the board are savvy enough...that way, I honestly don't think they'll be THAT many departures...and certainly not if suitable replacements can't be found...we don't have to sell... and if we do have to...let's just make sure we do get TOP dollar!!!

  • 8 million is probably nearer the mark, can beat any premiership defence at will, but sadly that's all. But if we don't need to sell, great! I think southamptonstoke have put in a cheeky offer just to unsettle the player, then they don't have to pay big bucks should Norwich feel they have to sell the lad if his head is turned.

  • What is wrong with NCFC and the pricing of players? Sell for 8 million and put a 2 million add on if he gets a full England cap... According to the London Evening Standard QPR have a bid of 4.8 million in for Leroy Fer and are expecting to close the deal. A World Cup international for less that 5 million - I find myself thinking of NCFC as the LIDL of transfer selling...

  • McCormack scored 30 goals last year and is worth 11m, Redmond may get better with time, but did not improve last season, final ball or shot is terrible. Ask for 7m, take 6m with good sell on clause and play young Murphy whose final ball is already better.

  • For ONCE can we keep our players!? Snod was good business, but we need to young talent to progress. We all know his final 3rd is lacking, but obviously seen that when it comes good he can score a hattrick. If we really are clear of debt, then we need to use our existing squad and funds to get back to the PL asap so we can get the new TV rights funding. Surely the board know this!?

  • …..I hope that Neil Adams has asked each and every one to state whether they as failed Premiership players are going to commit themselves to promotion with Norwich City....If they are committed...then keep them!... If the answer is negative ...Get Rid for the biggest penny!.... Reading between the lines I feel that some have already been placed in the 'For Sale' Bin....you know who I mean....The faked injuries.. the sore toes and knees...the not feeling up to it today...need to play at the top level...can't settle in Norfolk....It needs to be sorted..and quick!...and I feel we have a manager who can do just that!.....

  • Redmond is the sort of player that could decimate the Championship. Direct, with pace and skill. He could have the sort of impact Zaha had for Palace. I think he could be the difference between automatic promotion and playoff finishpossibly even below.

  • He will most likely go along with RVW, Fer and maybe Hooper on deadline day when it all gets a bit silly, but then we will have missed the boat and may be left short until January when we will panic and buy anything to fill the void.

  • With £8m from the sale of Snodgrass, £64m for finishing third from bottom last season, four seasons of parachute payments, even Robert Chase wouldn't be selling our best assets - and that is saying something in my opinion after the Chris Sutton sale on the eve of the season. The board need to show intent for the drivel served up for the best part of two seasons by Mr H. Let's take this division by storm with our experienced players plus youth. I can't wait to see Redmond, Hooper and company performing at Portaloo Road and brushing them aside like an irritating fly at a summer BBQ.

  • Redmond flatters to deceive most of the time. He looks good running at people but the end product in respect of goals or assists are minimal. That said he has scored goals in his England youth role.Surely given game time experience Murphy is going to be his equal. I think Redmond is in a similar position as Snodgrass - take any reasonable offer.

  • Surely, what the board thinks is largely irrelevant . Relegation offers the big boys the opportunity to turn heads towards the top flight. Consequently, you either sell or end up with a large section of your squad disgruntled and wanting to be elsewhere. Neither is particularly appealing, but the pragmatic view must be to maximise your return. At the end of the day, a footballer like everything else in life, is worth what someone is prepared to pay you for him.

  • Two pertinent points made here - for me Redmond is certainly a better player than Snodgrass because he is quicker and more mobile. But he is also young and learning so isn't yet the finished product. From that perspective I cannot see him being worth £15m to anyone as yet. However if he continues to improve and learn his trade then maybe he will become a very valuable asset. I hope the Board doesn't succumb to the temptation to sell him early on but if they do then they would be daft not to include a substantial sell-on clause relating to his career development.

  • Redmond has the courage and bravery to run at players, fans love that. It's very Huckerby-esk. Unfortunately that is all he has, his final ball - whether a cross or a shot have been awful for city. You can blame that on coachesmanagers but ultimately it's down to the player. We paid £3.2 million for Redmond. Based on his apparent potential and nationality £6 million is the highest anyone would pay for another one of our under-performing players. I don't understand why someone is comparing Redmond to McCormack - One scored 30 odd goals last season, the other put 99% of his crosses in to no-mans-land. The bulk of NCFC are so un-realistic with regards to how much these players are worth. Look at Leroy Fer - take away the fact he scored at the world cup, he was poor for city last season and now people are quoted ten and fifteen million for a clumsy clueless player.

  • Redmond is the sort we need to be hanging on to. If we let him go for anything less than silly money then we're opening ourselves up to be stripped of any youngsters who show promise. He goes, then who's to say someone doesn't come in for a Murphy or two come January or next summer?

  • In the past we were known as a seeling club and yes everyone has their price. But I totally agree with la barbe we have been told by McNally that we do not need to sell and we could buy without selling. So let's put a price on our players where the premier league will not want to know. Cardiff have the right idea 15m for Marshall, not worth half but it keeps the wolves from the door. If our players don't want to play in the championship they should have bucked there ideas up last season. They put us there so lets see what they can do go get us back up. Slap mega prices on them all if they don't like it tough.

  • If (when?) he goes I hope we negotiate a decent sell-on clause. At the moment his pace and trickery flatters to deceive but one day his final ball will improve and he will be a top player. Would be surprised if he stays to be honest, his head will have been turned playing at the top grounds last season...
