Robbie Brady's hopes of joining Premier League champions Leicester City look to have taken a hit with the Foxes announcing the purchase of Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa.

The club confirmed the signing this evening and although they didn't disclose how much they paid for the ex-CSKA Moscow man, the BBC are reporting that the fee is £16m.

The transfer could potentially block Brady's rumoured move to the King Power Stadium, especially given newspaper reports from earlier today.

According to the Mirror, Norwich want a £20m fee for the Dubliner, which Leicester are unwilling to pay.

Given Leicester's reluctance before Musa's purchase, their transfer budget is even less likely to cover the Canaries' asking price now.

While the possibility of Claudio Ranieri's side buying Ireland's Euro 2016 star appear to have lessened with Musa's big money arrival, hopefully Brady isn't waiting long for the Premier League move that he thoroughly deserves after a stellar June.
