Republic of Ireland striker Adam Idah has signed a new contract at Norwich City, extending his stay until June 2024.

The Cork native, who made both his Premier League and senior international debuts in 2020, had signed his first professional contract with the Canaries in 2019.

Speaking after signing on new terms, Idah said: "I'm over the moon. When I found out the news, I knew straight away that I wanted to extend my contract with the club because since I've come here, I’ve loved every moment of it.

"I love the club and it’s like a second family to me. Everyone’s been backing me since the minute I came here and it reminds me a lot of home. Norwich is so similar to Cork because everyone here is so friendly, not just at the club but out in public.

"I've developed a lot as a player and come up through every age group since I was 16. I still just want to get better and keep developing and I think this is the best place for me to do that."

Currently sidelined with a knee ligament injury sustained in Ireland's UEFA Nations League defeat to Wales in Cardiff in November, Idah is expected to return to first-team club action early in the New Year.

The 19-year-old had made seven Championship appearances this season before the injury, scoring the winning goal in Norwich's season opener against Huddersfield.

Norwich manager Daniel Farke cited Idah's potential in spurring the decision to offer the five-time Ireland cap updated terms.

"It's great news for both parties. We have a great lad and a player with lots of potential. He knows he has people who trust him and we’re a club who gives a stage to young players," he said.

"He was capable of being called up to Republic of Ireland’s first team as well. He can play in several positions and we wanted to give him more of a stage this season. Sadly, it was stopped by an injury, but there’s lots to come.

"He will need to improve and once he returns to team training if he can keep going with his attitude, I think he will have a great future."
