Norwich City have warned interested parties that Robbie Brady will only be sold if the price is right.

Struggling for form in the race for promotion from the Championship, Norwich admit that Premier League and Championship clubs are keen on Brady, their most valuable asset, and Burnley are favourites to sign the £13million-rated Dubliner.

But the Canaries insist they are not selling for below his value. "We've got a strong valuation of Rob after the Euros, his age, and the fact that he is versatile in his position and the scope that he has," says under-fire manager Alex Neil.

"The position remains the same - until a club meets our valuation he won't be going anywhere. There has been contact. A lot is done through agents and what have you but nothing is confirmed until a firm offer is on the table."

Steve Bruce, manager of Norwich's Championship rivals Aston Villa, has admitted his interest, though he fears they may be unable to afford the Baldoyle lad.

"I've signed Robbie before. I took him on loan from Man United to Hull - signed him and really liked him. I paid £2.5m back in the day but he'd be worth a little bit more than that now," Bruce said.
