Norwich City will target former Real Madrid full-back Marcos Alonso if Hull refuse to sell Robbie Brady.

The Canaries are still waiting for a final decision after what Alex Neil described as a 'good and fair' final offer prior to heading out on the club's two-date Alpine tour, which began on Monday night with a 1-0 friendly defeat to Maccabi Haifa.

Hull chief Steve Bruce has maintained a hardline stance, despite Brady entering the final year of his current deal on Humberside and indicating he wants to stay in the top flight by leaving the relegated Tigers.

Norwich is now believed to be weighing up a four million euros move for the 24-year-old Spaniard, who played 35 games for Fiorentina last season.

Alonso has experience of England's top flight with both Bolton and Sunderland and can operate anywhere down the left-hand flank.

Neil has made no secret of his desire to bolster that key part of his squad, with Bradley Johnson again deployed at full-back against the Israelis in the absence of Martin Olsson.

The Scot admitted afterwards City remain in a holding pattern with their transfer target list.

We are chasing things and waiting for either a yes or no answer from players we have identified.'
