Hull City have already received several offers for their star defender Robbie Brady
Hull City have already received several offers for their star defender Robbie Brady, but manager Steve Bruce admits that none of them have even come close to their valuation of the player. It is understood that Norwich City alone have made three offers for the player in the last week.
The latest of those offers have been taken to around £ 3 million, but Bruce has slammed such offers as ridiculous. He has pointed out to the transfer value of several players that Hull have either sold or purchased in the last three years. Even Brady was a purchased for around £ 2.75 million.
Bruce reckons that Hull will allow the player to join another club if they receive a fair price. One of the reasons for Hull’s higher valuation of Brady is the progress made by the 23-year-old in the last three years. He has been integral in the club’s presence in the Premier League over the last two years. His performances have enabled him to become a regular international for the Republic of Ireland national team. At just 23 years of age, he still has a lot of time left to even reach the peak of his career.
"Norwich have come in with bids for Robbie Brady but I have to say they've been embarrassing.The supporters should know the truth and Norwich came in two weeks ago with a bid of £2m, £2.5m and then £3m.That's ridiculous for someone who is 23, has played two years in the Premier League and has become a regular international.When we've just got almost twice that for Tom Ince (who joined Derby for £5m). It doesn't make sense. We paid £2.75m for Robbie and that was three years ago,” said Bruce, who may have to depend upon the business done in order to buy his own.
