Robbie Brady is loving the prospect of linking up with fellow Dubliner Wes Hoolahan in Norwich City's Premier League crusade after completing his move from Hull.

The 23-year-old agreed a three year deal on Wednesday for an undisclosed fee after finally cutting his ties with the relegated Tigers.

Brady was later joined at Carrrow Road by Liverpool youngster Andre Wisdom, who sealed a season-long loan move from Anfield.

Both could make their Norwich debuts in this weekend's pre-season friendly against Brentford, with Brady revealing he is savouring the prospect of featuring alongside his Republic of Ireland mentor.

'I spoke to Wes Hoolahan before I came here and he assured me everything would be fine,' said Brady. 'Nobody knows this place better than Wes with the number of years he has been here, probably the longest-serving player, and I'm sure if I have any problems or need to check anything Wes is the man. Hopefully we can link up well on the pitch.

'There is not many like him and training with him day in and day out at the national side he is one of the best I have played with. If I can pick up and learn things with him that can only improve my game.'

Brady's versatility down the left flank could be a major boost to the Canaries.

'I spent most of my career as an attacking player, until last season when I had to change my game a little bit. I feel that has only helped me in the long run,' he told the club's official site. 'I like playing higher up the field, as most would say. I'll play wherever the manager wants me.

'Hopefully the manager lets me play on Saturday. I'll have a chat on Friday and if he puts me in I'll be ready to go. I'm absolutely buzzing to complete this move. It dragged on for a bit but I am just glad its over the line now and I can't wait to get started.

'I am so grateful to the manager here to give me another opportunity to play at the highest level.'
