Transfer News – Republic of Ireland star moves for £7million

Robbie Brady is on the verge of a return to the Premier League, after Norwich and Hull reached an overdue agreement on the fee Steve Bruce’s team would receive from the Premier League newcomers for the left sided Irish international.

The fee for the 23 year old is believed to be around £7million, with the deal expected to be completed after Brady agrees personal terms with Alex Neil’s side, and passes a medical exam.

Brady who has thirteen Republic of Ireland caps, first joined Steve Bruce’s Hull on loan from Manchester United at the start of the 2011/2012 season. He made fifty one appearances for the club on loan, before his move was made permanent by Hull City during January 2013, going on to make a further sixty three appearances in the Championship, and as part of the Hull City team that spent two seasons in the Premier League.

Steve Bruce has thanked Brady for his time at the KC Stadium, saying;

“The two clubs have agreed a fee for Robbie. We have given Robbie permission to go and speak to Norwich. I envisage that deal to go through.

“I want to thank Robbie for his efforts as he has been a terrific player for us. It’s sad to see him go but most people will understand that when you get relegated these things happen.”
