Five stats: Norwich complete £7million move for Hull City's Robbie Brady

Norwich City

Norwich City have confirmed the signing of Hull City midfielder Robbie Brady on a three-year deal.

The Republic of Ireland international rejected an offer of a new contract with the Tigers and joins the newly-promoted Canaries for a fee believed to be in the region of £7million - as revealed by HITC Sport over the weekend.

The 23-year-old Irishman has been in Norfolk since Monday to finalise personal terms and complete a medical. He could make his City debut in this weekend’s final home friendly against Brentford now that the deal has been officially announced on the club's official website.

Following Brady's return to the Premier League, here are a few stats...

35 - Brady fashioned 35 key passes for Hull last season, including two assists. Tom Huddlestone was the only player to create more chances than the 23-year-old at the KC Stadium.

0 - He finished the season with a blank scoresheet, having averaged 0.9 shots per appearance. He finished the season 15 goals behind the Canaries' top scoring midfielder Bradley Johnson, who averaged 2.8 attempts per match.

29 - The Republic of Ireland international finished the season having completed 29 take ons, at a rate of 1.3 dribbles per game. This saw him rank second at Hull, behind Ahmed Elmohamady, while he would have ranked third at Norwich. 

69 - Brady completed just 69.2% of his total attempted passes last term; the worst completion rate of any midfielder at the KC Stadium.

4 - The 23-year-old averaged four defensive actions (interceptions, blocks and clearances) per appearance last term; the second highest contribution from a midfielder playing for either Norwich or Hull. This included 78 clearances throughout the campaign.
