West Ham fans react on Twitter to approach for Robbie Brady
By Tom Blackburn
Norwich defender Robbie Brady could be on his way to West Ham – and their fans have taken to Twitter to give their verdict.
Football Insider reported on Wednesday morning that West Ham were weighing up a bid for Brady.
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.

West Ham 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.
With the move looking increasingly likely Hammers fans took to Twitter and while there was a mixed response, most fans would be happy to have the Irishman on board.
Here are a selection of their messages:
