The latest rumor this morning about Newcastle United in the transfer market, is that we are after 20 year-old winger Nathan Redmond of Norwich City.
Nathan Redmond – 20 year-old Norwich City winger
Southampton are also said to be keen on the player, who only turned 20 in March.
The news is that Norwich want to keep their youngster on the basis that they are hoping to get promoted straight back to the Premier League next season at the first attempt.
And we think a bid of around £3M may be enough to get Redmond on board, and the youngster certainly has lots of potential and played 39 times for Norwich last season with one goal and did OK.
Nathan was born in Birmingham, and joined his home town club at the age of 8, and he made his debut for the first team in the Football League Cup second-round tie against Rochdale in August of 2010, becoming the club’s second-youngest player ever, at the age of 16 years and 173 days.
He played 82 games with 9 goals over three seasons for Birmingham before moving to Norwich last summer for £2M, with around £1M in add-ons, based on the number of times he plays for the Norwich City first team.
Stoke City are a third PL club said to be interested in the player, and have already bid earlier this summer for a player who has played for all the England youth sides from U16 through U21, having made 11 appearances for the U21 side with four goals.
This lad is certainly talented, but it’s always hard to know whether he will make it and become a top player in the Premier League.
