Aston Villa are unlikely to further their interest in signing Norwich City wide man Robbie Brady according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international has strongly been linked with a move to Villa Park during the current transfer window however it now seems that Villa manager Steve Bruce will turn his attention to a number of other transfer targets.

It has been reported that Norwich City are unwilling to let the player go for anything less than £13 million with Premier League club Burnley having reportedly seen a transfer bid for that value rejected by The Canaries. Brady’s hefty price tag is expected to deter any remaining interest from Villa with the valuation proving to be too high and Villa boss Bruce is more likely to search the market for signings which represent better value for money.

Brady is a product of the academy system at Manchester United. The player graduated to the senior squad at Old Trafford but made just a solitary appearance for The Red Devils as a substitute in a League Cup tie against Newcastle United back in September 2012.

The player joined Hull City on a permanent basis after two successful loan spells on Humberside and Brady enjoyed two-and-a-half years with The Tigers in which he experienced UEFA Europa League football.

In summer 2015, the midfielder joined current club Norwich City for a reported £7 million transfer fee and Brady has gone on to make 61 appearances for The Canaries scoring 7 goals.
