Norwich have been chasing Brady throughout the summer and have finally now agreed a fee to sign him from Hull, with the Republic of Ireland international set to undergo a medical and finalise terms on Monday.
“The two clubs have agreed a fee for Robbie,” Steve Bruce said after Hull’s 0-0 friendly against Hannover on Sunday night. “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. 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.”
Brady will become Norwich’s fourth signing of the summer after Graham Dorrans, Youssouf Mulumbu and Tony Andreu, but Neil is still hoping to make further additions.
“I think there has been a lot of speculation surrounding us and players,” Neil told the Pink Un. “Rickie Lambert was tagged with us maybe two or three weeks ago now and then it went quiet and it crept back up again. At the moment it is just speculation.
“I think having added Graham Dorrans and Mulumbu if I could add another three or four I would be pleased. Over the course of the start of this week onwards we would like to hopefully do a couple more bits of business.”
