Norwich manager Daniel Farke says he's taking a careful approach with the development of Republic of Ireland under-21 forward Adam Idah. 

The Cork youngster has had only 170 minutes in the Premier League this term, despite scoring a hat-trick against Preston in the FA Cup's third-round.

“Adam is a great guy,” Farke told the Eastern Daily Press of Idah's situation at the Canaries. “At this age he is already there in the matchday squad and getting minutes. I don’t see any other club where he would have gotten this at Premier League level.

“He is still a work in progress and he has to improve in many parts of the game, in his endurance and his ability to link the play. But he improves day by day and I am never scared to play young players.

“I can still remember after Adam scored at Preston I was hearing he will help us stay in this league. Then he starts at Manchester United in the next game and we lose 4-0 and he was seen as too lightweight and maybe in a few years he will be ready. I won’t go over the moon or be too critical.

“Let’s take some responsibility off the young lads if we can. They have to carry us with their performances but they should not be responsible for carrying the spirit of the team as well – not in the greatest league in the world.”
