West Ham are weighing up a bid for Norwich defender Robbie Brady, according to a report.

It was reported on Sunday that Aston Villa had dropped their interest in the Irishman.

Now The Eastern Daily Press claim that West Ham are the latest club to be monitoring Brady’s situation.

The Euro 2016 star has impressed at this summer’s European Championships and has subsequently attracted interest from Premier League sides Leicester, West Brom and Southampton.

He started all four games for his country in France and scored twice, including the winning goal against Italy which took Ireland past the group stages.

The Manchester United youth graduate starred in 36 Premier League encounters for Norwich in the recently completed season scoring three goals and providing two assists, but he was unable to keep the Canaries in the Premier League.

He has only been at Norwich for one season, having joined from Hull for a fee in excess of £8million and he still has two years left on his Carrow Road contract.

West Ham are preparing themselves for a big season in the Premier League as they move into the Olympic Stadium, and look to build on their performance this season.

They have failed to land a number of big-money targets after losing out on Michy Batshuayi and Christian Benteke, while they are also set to accept defeat in their pursuit of Alexandre Lacazette.

In other West Ham news, they will announce their fifth summer signing but it will initially be a loan.
