Leicester City have been told they need to increase their valuation of Robbie Brady if they are to bring the Ireland star to the Foxes and offer him Champions League football next season.

Brady, currently on a family holiday after Monday's return home from France, will be in demand over the summer following his superb displays for Ireland at Euro 2016, and Premier League champions Leicester are among the clubs keen to sign the 24-year-old.

But Norwich, who know they will struggle to hold on to Brady following their relegation, do not want to let the Dubliner leave on the cheap as the Canaries are keen to make a large profit on the player who cost them a reported £7million from Hull City last year.

Norwich have already banked £10million from the sale of Nathan Redmond and will not get involved in a cut-price deal for Brady, Norwich now valuing Brady in the £12million bracket.

Tout

Martin O'Neill was reluctant to tout his players - like Brady for a move but even before the tournament started, Roy Keane predicted that Brady would not be in the Championship next term.

"It would be wrong for me to be talking about his club career because he's at a good club in Norwich," said Keane before the tournament.

"But I would expect him to have options because he's a good player and the importance of dead-ball situations, not just in the Euros, but in the Premier League."
