HULL CITY MANAGER Steve Bruce has confirmed that the club have accepted a bid from Norwich City for Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady.

The Canaries have had multiple bids turned down this summer, with a £3 million bid being labelled as embarrassing by Steve Bruce. They have now agreed a fee reportedly in the region of £7m.

Brady’s future at the KC Stadium has been in doubt ever since the club were relegated from the Premier League. Although he has still to undergo a medical and finalise terms at Carrow Road, he is expected to complete the deal as early as next week.

“The two clubs have agreed a fee for Robbie,” Steve Bruce told Sky Sports News. “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 Dubliner began his career at Manchester United before joining Hull on a permanent basis after two successful loan spells at the KC Stadium. He made 34 appearances for the Tigers last season and forced his way into Martin O’Neill’s Irish team. Steve Bruce told Sky Sports that he had no hard feeling toward the people and wished him well in the Premier League.

“When Norwich were relegated last season, we got Robert Snodgrass. They are doing the reverse this year and they have taken one of our good players.

“And he is a good player, and we wish him the best of luck.”

When Brady does sign, he will become Norwich’s third capture of the summer following the arrivals of midfielders Youssouf Mulumbu and Graham Dorrans.
