Report: Norwich City refuse to meet Hull asking price for Robbie Brady

Hull City KC Stadium

The Canaries are said to be keen on the winger but don't want to pay the lofty price being quoted.

Norwich City are refusing to meet Hull City’s £7million asking price for winger Robbie Brady, reports the Daily Mail.

The Canaries are looking at strengthening their squad ahead of their Premier League return next season, and had reportedly identified the Republic of Ireland international as a possible target.

However, Hull boss Steve Bruce is not keen on losing one of his key players and has slapped a hefty £7 million price tag on his man to ward off interest.

And it has seemingly worked, with Norwich balking at that price and only being willing to pay around £4.5million for the former Manchester United man, according to the Daily Mail’s report.

A big price for an average performer 

The reported price Hull have placed on their man does seem excessive to say the least, especially given Brady was hardly a star performer for them last season.

In 27 league appearances he made just two assists and failed to score, something Norwich would likely be acutely aware of.

Given those kinds of statistics, you can see why they’re unwilling to pay such a lofty fee and for the time being at least, it seems Brady will be playing his football in the Championship next season.
