Leicester City in talks over Ireland star Robbie Brady

Posted by

Leicester City are contemplating a move to bring one of Euro 2016’s strongest performers, Ireland winger Robbie Brady, to the King Power Stadium next season.

According to the Leicester Mercury, the Premier League champions are in talks over a possible move for the 24-year-old winger.

Per the source, Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri is interested in giving Brady a chance to return to the Premier League, rather than join his club in Championship division next season.

Brady netted twice for Ireland during the tournament, including a vital goal to secure a 1-0 victory over Italy in the Group Stage and the first goal against France in the 2-1 knockout round loss.

The Mercury also noted that other clubs are also looking considering bringing Brady into the fold, and are seeking more than the  £7 million they paid Hull City for the Ireland star last year.

Brady scored three goals and added two assists in 36 league appearances for Norwich City last year, but the Canaries were unable to avoid the relegation drop. During the season, Brady earned Man of the Match honours four times.
