Burnley have been knocked back twice with bids for Robbie Brady and will now turn their attention to Robert Snodgrass report the Daily Mail
The Mail report that Clarets’ manager, Sean Dyche wants to sign a wide player this January and had ear marked Brady as his number one target. It seems though that City’s £13m asking price is a bit too rich for Burnley and they have now made a £7.5m offer for Hull’s Snodgrass.
Ex-Canary Snodgrass has seven goals in the Premier League and is doing handsomely in my fantasy football team, valued at just £1m. Until last week he had either scored or assisted 50% of all Hull’s Premier League goals this term.
He has 18 months left on his contract after declining to sign a contract extension last month AND thought he only had six months left on his contract (sound familiar?) but here’s the killer, it turns out the club had a one year option that they have now exercised.
The player apparently didn’t know – you couldn’t make it up.
Anyway, I would be amazed if Hull sell their only real chance of staying up to a rival this month and certainly not for that sort of price.
Even with 18 months left on his deal, he’s got to be worth at least that £13m.
