Yesterday, Stephen Ward was quoted in the Irish press suggesting that his Burnley and Ireland team mate Jeff Hendrick was trying to persuade fellow Irishman Robbie Brady to leave Norwich for Burnley.

Today, the press in East Anglia are reporting that Hendrick is indeed keen on his mate joining up with the Clarets. “For me personally it would be brilliant to have another friend here and I think he would help the squad as well,” Hendrick has said.

“I text him a lot and talk to him every few days. We grew up together and I have known him since the age of seven, so we have a lot of different conversations. He is a great player and everyone is saying how well he’s done over the previous few years, but at the end of the day the decision is his. Hopefully he will see this interview and see how much I want him to come.”

Sean Dyche played the straight bat again today, as you would expect, when asked about potential transfers into Burnley but reports have since surfaced that the Clarets have lodged a bid of £13 million for Brady who has been with Norwich since the summer of 2015 after moving from Hull in a £7 million  move.

Should Brady become a Burnley player, the earliest he could pull on a claret and blue shirt is a week on Tuesday when we play Leicester at the Turf. He would be ineligible for the FA Cup tie against Bristol City having played this week for Norwich at Southampton in a 3rd round replay.
