Transfer Rumour: Norwich Keen On Tom Adeyemi Return

Norwich City are set for a huge summer, with sporting director Stuart Webber already overseeing a host of major changes.

The Canaries not only parted ways with manager Alex Neil shortly before Webber's arrival, but they have also confirmed that seven players – John Ruddy, Steven Whittaker, Sebastien Bassong, Michael Turner, Ryan Bennett, Youssouf Mulumbu and Kyle Lafferty – will all leave on free transfers this summer.

A new manager should be imminent for Norwich, and a host of new signings will be prepared, with one former Norwich youngster being linked with a surprise return to East Anglia.

The Sheffield Star report that Norwich want to re-sign midfielder Tom Adeyemi, who is poised to move on as a free agent this summer when his contract Cardiff City contract ends.

Adeyemi, 25, was born in Norwich and came up through the ranks with the club, and moved on to Birmingham City and Cardiff City, before loan spells with Leeds United and Rotherham United.

The athletic midfielder was one of the few shining lights from Rotherham's relegation campaign, notching six goals and two assists in the Championship this season, and Norwich seemingly want to hand him another shot at success at Carrow Road.

The move would make particular sense if Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler – currently the favourite for the Norwich job with Sky Bet – was to be confirmed as Neil's replacement, given the relationship between the pair.

Rosler worked with Adeyemi at Brentford during the 2012-13 season, and then swooped to sign him again whilst managing Leeds, reuniting at Elland Road in another loan deal.

Adeyemi is clearly one of Rosler's most trusted players, and a move to bring him back to Carrow Road seems to be ideal for the Canaries should they bring in the German as their new boss, immediately handing him a familiar new signing without breaking the bank.
