Robbie Brady is back in the Premier League after completing a club record £13m move to Burnley last night. The Dubliner finally secured a move away from Norwich after they managed to secure a replacement.

He has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with Burnley, who announced the capture at half-time in their Premier League meeting with Leicester. Brady underwent a medical before the fixture, which his new team won 1-0.

Sunderland boss David Moyes revealed earlier in the day that the 25-year-old had rejected the chance to move to the Stadium of Light.

Brady has suffered back-to-back relegations with Hull and Norwich and Burnley are much better placed to survive this term with good home form leaving them clear of the drop zone.

The move to Turf Moor will see him link up with childhood friend Jeff Hendrick and Ireland international Stephen Ward. Burnley's previous record was the £10.5m they paid to bring Hendrick to the club after he shone next to Brady at Euro 2016.
