Burnley have completed the club-record signing of Robbie Brady from Norwich City.
The 25-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year contract, with the option of a further year at Turf Moor.
This marks the third time in the 2016/17 season that Sean Dyche’s side have broken their transfer record for an incoming player. The Clarets spent a then record £8m on Belgian midfielder Steven Defour from Anderlecht before splashing £10.5m on Derby County’s Jeff Hendrick a fortnight later.
A versatile left-sided option, who can operate at full-back or midfield, Brady could represent a useful asset to Sean Dyche’s squad, who seek to consolidate their Premier League status.
The former Manchester United youngster does possess top-flight experience, making 43 Premier League appearances as a Hull City player between 2013 and 2015.
He bagged 4 goals in 23 Championship appearances for the Canaries this season, including a Goal of the Season contender away at Wolverhampton Wanderers in October.
Burnley fans will hope that Brady can replicate his form at Euro 2016, where he helped his country reach the knockout stages via a crucial headed goal against Antonio Conte’s Italy.
Brady will aim to frustrate Conte once again as his first match at Turf Moor sees the passionate Italian’s Chelsea side make the trip to Lancashire. The 25-year-old could potentially make his Clarets debut this weekend when Burnley take on Watford at Vicarage Road.
Will Brady repay his hefty price tag?
