Robbie Brady might be able to find a route back into the Premier League before the season kicks off as Norwich City manager Alex Neil has openly admitted his interest in the Irish winger.
This has annoyed Brady’s current boss at Hull City, Steve Bruce. He has hit back at his Norwich counterpart saying the bids for one of his prized assets were “embarrassing.”
“Norwich have come in with bids for Robbie Brady, but I have to say they have been embarrassing.”
“The supporters should know the truth and Norwich came in two weeks ago with a bid of £2m, £2.5m and then £3m.”
“That’s ridiculous for someone who is 23, has played two years in the Premier League and has become a regular international.”
But Brady might still be on the move as Neil has said he intends to up his pursuit of the former Manchester United left sided player.
“Steve Bruce can say what he likes. It doesn’t make any difference to us,” said Neil in the Norwich Evening News.
“We go about our business in an unassuming way. We just do our own thing. We don’t try and put things in the press.”
“If they want to do that, that is fine. We are working on things and I don’t really like to get into individuals but as everybody is aware Robbie Brady is a player we like.”
“We have made a few bids and there is interest, but at the moment we have to wait and see what is going to happen.”
Neil is aiming to strengthen his squad ahead of their return to the Premier League this season. Brady is a key target for the Canaries who have already signed both Graham Dorrans and Yousuff Mulumbu from West Bromwich Albion.
The Championship Play-Off winners have had three bids already turned down by Hull but Neil appears intent on bringing the Republic of Ireland international to Carrow Road. They kick-off their campaign at home to Crystal Palace on the 8th of August.
