Robbie Brady: Burnley sign Norwich City midfielder for club-record fee

Robbie Brady

After months and months of speculation, Dubliner Robbie Brady has finally sealed a move back to the Premier League.

And the Clarets have again broken their record for a transfer fee by paying Norwich City a reported £13million for the 25-year-old.

The Republic of Ireland worldwide has penned a three-and-a-half year deal with Sean Dyche's side, with the option for a further year, and becomes the club's second signing of deadline day following the earlier arrival of Ashley Westwood from Villa.

With Norwich making a handful of Deadline Day signings, the path opened up for Brady to return to the Premier League with Burnley. The versatile star can play left-back or left-midfield and will provide an alternative option to a Clarets side who have been achieving above expectations so far this season.

It is thought that Sunderland and Crystal Palace were keen to make a late move for the Ireland star, but he always favoured a move to Turf Moor, where he will link up with his long-time friend Jeff Hendrick and his fellow Ireland worldwide Stephen Ward.

Brady made 62 appearances for Norwich after switching from Hull City in July 2015 and became Burnley's second new recruit on Tuesday, following Ashley Westwood who joined from Aston Villa.
