Hull City manager Steve Bruce has ended speculation over Robbie Brady’s future, confirming that the player will move to Norwich City.
A medical is set to take place in the next 48 hours.
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.
Bruce told reporters: ‘’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’’.
The Canaries have for long been 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 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.
And despite completing a transfer to bring in two new signings, the manager will still have a lot to worry about ahead of the new campaign.
