Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady is being chased by a number of clubs, although he could yet remain at Bournemouth, TEAMtalk understands.

Brady is out of contract at the Vitality Stadium having joined the Cherries in October last season.

He was a valuable squad member for Bournemouth and made seven appearances, and the club would like to keep him.

The Dubliner finished their promotion campaign strongly and was impressive against Swansea and Millwall in their run-in.

Bournemouth have yet to trigger a 12-month extension on the player’s short-term deal that expired last month.

Scott Parker has confirmed he would like the 30-year-old to stay on for their Premier League campaign even though he revealed his frustration at Brady’s fitness situation.

“He’s just picked up a little bit of a calf injury at the moment. So it is disappointing for Robbie,” Parker said in February.

“At this present moment in time, he can’t seem to stay fit.He’s had numerous problems and little issues, little slight issues what he’s picked up.

“Which is obviously very disappointing because he just can’t get any consistency, he can’t stay fit for any amount of time.

“So we’re constantly looking at it. And seeing what we can change or we can do to try and get him right. So at this moment, he’s going to be a few weeks off.”

However, a number of clubs are looking at the former Hull, Burnley and Norwich man.

Indeed, it is believed that all of his ex-employers are keeping tabs on his situation.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough, Huddersfield and Sunderland are also being linked with an interest in the classy midfielder.
