Robbie Brady On Verge Of Premier League Move As £9m Bid Accepted

Robbie Brady On Verge Of Premier League Move As £9m Bid Accepted

Back in the summer, Norwich wanted £20m for Ireland's Euros star Robbie Brady.

It would seem they have, by all accounts, fucked it, but we don't care as long as Robbie Brady is headed to the Premier League.

And that now seems extremely likely. The Guardian's London football correspondent Dominic Fifield has confirmed that Norwich have accepted a bid worth an initial £9m for Ireland's no.10 from Crystal Palace.

Fifield reports that the fee could rise to £12m with appearance and achievement related add-ons - still far less than what Norwich were looking for following the Euros.

There is, however, one catch; Palace have reportedly agreed an identical fee with Sunderland for Dutch left-back Patrick van Aanholt - a player of a similarly attacking persuasion to Brady (whom Allardyce has previously admitted he views as a left-back despite regularly playing in midfield for Ireland).

Fifield writes in The Guardian that, "Palace’s decision to explore a deal for Brady would suggest Sam Allardyce is keeping his options open as to which left-sided defender to sign."

Brady has also been linked with a move to Burnley where he'd link up with former St. Kevins Boys and current international teammate Jeff Hendrick, but he now stands on the brink of a move to Selhurst Park - it would seem depending on Allardyce's fancy.

The bid is accepted, it's now down to Big Sam to make the big call. Or, you know, just sign both.
