Norwich City have completed the signing of Hull City winger Robbie Brady on a three-year deal with the option of another year, a club insider from Hull City has confirmed to Football League World.
The deal, believed to be in the region of around £7 million will see the winger return to the Premier League following the Tigers’ relegation to the Sky Bet Championship last season.
Last night, Hull boss Steve Bruce conceded that the player wanted to continue to play top-flight football. He told reporters: “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’’.
The Canaries were for long linked with the Irish international, as the saga took several twists and turns before an agreement was eventually struck. Bruce previously lambasted an ‘’embarrassing’’ £3 million offer by Norwich early in July. It was one of five proposals put on the table.
The 23-year-old joined the Tigers permanently from Premier League side Manchester United in 2013 after spending two loan spells at the KC Stadium – In two seasons, he started 43 games and scored three goals.
With this move, Bruce’s concerns over a diminishing squad continue to grow.
Brady will look to excel and develop as a footballer at the Canaries, and being given the opportunity to perform at the highest level of English football with Norwich will be beneficial.
