Norwich City have completed the signing of Hull City winger Robbie Brady for an undisclosed fee.

Brady has agreed a three-year deal at Carrow Road and becomes Alex Neil’s third recruit of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Graham Dorrans and Youssouf Mulumbu.

The 23-year-old has played more than 40 times in the Premier League in the past two seasons and been capped 14 times by the Republic of Ireland.

“He’s dynamic, he’s got good energy to get up and down the pitch, and he’s got a fantastic left foot which makes him a real danger at set-pieces. He’s got a lot of things in his locker.

“It gives us good competition down the left side. He’s got good pedigree and he’s still young so he’s got his best days ahead of him, so we’re just really happy that we’ve managed to get it over the line.”

'Great test' for Norwich City after defeat in anniversary friendly

Norwich City manager Alex Neil has described his club's defeat by West Ham as a 'great test' and said: “I think it shows the strength in depth that we do have. The lads held their own and I was pleased for them.”

West Ham won the pre-season friendly by 1-0 in a match that marked the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Carrow Road ground. The two clubs met in 1935.

“It was always going to be tough when they made nine substitutions, particularly when that team is most of their regular starters from last season.

“It was a great test for our boys, particularly that last half an hour, to make sure they dig in and try and do as much as they can and be stretched and tested as much as they could be. That was good preparation for the league.”
