Reports tonight suggest that Ireland's Euro 2016 hero won't be joining the champions after Norwich slapped a very hefty price tag on his head.

The Mirror is reporting that the Canaries want £20m for the Dubliner, and that fee is simply too steep for Leicester.

The 24-year old nabbed two goals at this summer's tournament for Ireland and his header that beat Italy cemented his place in the hearts of Irish fans forever.

He is loved in Norwich too but it is understood that he would rather return to the Premier League especially if it was to a side in the Champions League like Leicester.

It had been reported that he would be doing so with the Foxes, and a fee of £12m had been mentioned, but now it seems the price on his head has risen considerably.

Previously West Brom were said to be interested in the former Manchester United man and the Mirror report suggests West Ham are also considering a move.

We won't rule out seeing Brady ply his trade in the top flight next season just yet.
