Robbie Brady to leave Burnley this summer

Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady will leave Burnley when his contract expires this summer. 

The 29-year-old Dubliner became the Clarets' record signing when he joined them from Norwich for £13 million in 2017.

Brady played a key role in their seventh place finish in the Premier League in 2018 before spending almost 11 months on the sidelines with a knee injury.

“I've really enjoyed my time here,” he told Burnley's official website in announcing his impending departure.

“I've loved every minute and I'm really going to miss the lads. They have been a massive part of my career and I've made friends who I will hold onto for a long, long time. In that respect everything has been great.

“Unfortunately, I picked up a quite significant injury when I felt like I was almost reaching the peak of my game in that season where we finished in the European spots.

“We'd had a really good spell and picked up a lot of points but then I picked up the injury and that was me for almost a year. I found it difficult with the magnitude of the injury getting back.

“It was a long road and a hard road for me, personally, but I managed to get there.”

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has confirmed that Brady will stay at Turf Moor to complete rehabilitation on an tendon issue while searching for a new club.

“Robbie has been incredibly unfortunate with injuries,” Dyche said.  “In his strongest spell for us – when he was really flying and helped us qualify for Europe – he got a really serious injury.

“He came back from that and one or two other injuries to play his part in a strong time for the club.

“When he has played, he has been a credit to himself and a good servant to us as a club and we wish him well in the future.”
