Robbie Brady’s potential transfer to Crystal Palace looks to be off after the Eagles agreed a £14m fee with Sunderland for left back, Patrick van Aanholt reports the Irish Independent
A couple of days ago we had the news that Palace had bid an initial £9m with another £3m in add-ons for Norwich Winger, Brady. Yesterday we suggested via the Irish media that the Brady bid was a backup plan in case the move for Palace’s number one target, van Aanholt fell through.
Well, it seems that narrows Brady’s options down a little with Burnley now thought to have a clear run at gaining his signature.
There’s plenty of talk on Twitter that Brady’s agent met representatives of Burnley yesterday and that a fee has or is on the verge of being agreed with Norwich. The talk of Robert Snodgrass to Burnley seems to have died down after it was suggested by Hull that the decision of a move was with the player and that he didn’t want to go to Burnley. West Ham and Middlesbrough have also had bids accepted for the former Norwich winger but it’s not too much of a stretch to think he’d prefer to go to West Ham.
