Norwich City midfielder Robbie Brady's future is set to be remain the subject of intense speculation with Sunderland reportedly weighing up a January transfer window move.

The Telegraph claimed on Thursday afternoon the struggling Black Cats could be ready to test City's resolve when the window opens after a reported £20m summer price tag proved a major stumbling block for a host of Premier League suitors.

Sunderland currently prop up the table under David Moyes with two draws and no wins from their opening eight league games and reports Sam Allardyce is being lined up with a return to the Stadium of Light after his England exit.

Brady, who signed a three-year deal with an option for a further year at the Canaries, when he moved from Hull in 2015, eventually stayed at Carrow Road despite being strongly linked with champions Leicester City and Everton following his impressive displays for the Republic of Ireland during Euro 2016.

The Dubliner recently spoke about the intense speculation that had surrounded him after returning from France and made it clear he wants to get back to the Premier League as soon as possible.

Brady has been relegated from the top flight with both Norwich and former club Hull City but impressed during his debut season at Carrow Road.
