Steve Bruce tells Norwich to up bid for Ireland star Robbie Brady to £8m
HULL City manager Steve Bruce has claimed Norwich's move for Ireland winger Robbie Brady is at a stalemate.
Norwich boss Alex Neil has spoken of his desire to provide competition in every position, having recently deployed midfielder Bradley Johnson as emergency defensive cover, but has been left frustrated at not being able to get transfer targets to the Norfolk club,
Bruce suggested Norwich would have to improve their offer on Brady closer to the club's £8m valuation to progress the transfer.
"As we stand at the minute it seems like a bit of a stalemate," Bruce said.
"They have put in a bid 10 days ago which was rejected and I hope they don't make another one.
"We have made a stance on it and made ourselves pretty clear. Unless they meet the valuation that the owners want then he will remain a Hull City player. It is as simple as that.
"You are never going to question Robbie's attitude. He is a really good young player. We all know that and we all desperately hope he will stay."
