Hull manager Phil Brown has distanced himself from rumours linking the club with a move for striker Mark Viduka.

Brown has made no secret of his plans to bolster his frontline this summer and it has been suggested he could turn to out-of-contract Viduka.

The Australian is currently without a club after his deal at Newcastle expired at the end of last season.

Viduka's agent Steve Kutner recently claimed the forward is weighing up offers from two Premier League clubs, but Brown says Hull are not one.

"Mark is out of contract and therefore a free agent and able to talk to anybody. I've not had a conversation with Mark or his agent" Brown told the Hull Daily Mail.

"He hasn't worked since he finished with Newcastle at the end of the season.

"If we were interested in Mark Viduka, we'd pick the phone up and speak to Mark Viduka because he's not attached to any football club and that hasn't happened."

Asked if it was likely to happen, Brown replied: "No."

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson believes Bobby Zamora will reject a move to Hull as he continues his pursuit of Peter Crouch.

Hull have had a £5million offer for Zamora accepted and the striker has held talks with Phil Brown over a switch to the KC Stadium.

Brown is awaiting a decision from the 28-year-old after confirming the club will not improve their "lucrative" offer to the striker.

However, it appears the Tigers are set for further frustration in the transfer market after Hodgson expressed his belief that Zamora will be staying at Craven Cottage.

"We allowed Bobby to talk to Hull, but he wants to stay with us and I'm delighted," said Hodgson in the News of the World.

"He didn't score many goals last season, but he will this time because he is a very good technician."

Reports had claimed that Zamora's future at Fulham hinged on Hodgson's bid to sign England international Crouch from Portsmouth.

The Fulham chief has ruled out such a scenario and remains hopeful of winning the race for Crouch despite Pompey accepting an offer from Tottenham for the forward.

"This will not end our pursuit of Crouch," said Hodgson regarding the Zamora situation.

"We have spoken to Portsmouth and to the player's agent about wages and I am hopeful something will happen."

Tigers boss Phil Brown will have to look again after yet another striker rejection...

Hull City could be set to make a move for Manchester City striker Benjani Mwaruwari after Fulham front man Bobby Zamora rejected the chance to join the club.

The Tigers had a reported £5 million offer for Zamora accepted by Fulham but the player could not agree personal terms at the KC Stadium and thus the deal has been terminated.

Zamora has become the fourth forward to turn down a switch to Hull this summer, with Michael Owen, Fraizer Campbell and Marc-Antoine Fortune all opting to go elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the Benjani transfer could be possible for a fee of around £3m, according to a report in The Daily Mirror.

The Zimbabwean striker has fallen a long way down the pecking order at Eastlands during this transfer window after the arrivals of Carlos Tevez, Roque Santa Cruz and Emmanuel Adebayor.

The former Portsmouth hitman would face an uphill struggle to play his way back into favour with Citizens boss Mark Hughes, with Craig Bellamy also keen to stay and fight for his place in the first-team.

Hughes has already sold Ched Evans to Sheffield United, while Felipe Caicedo has completed a season-long loan move to Portuguese club Sporting.

Hull boss Phil Brown insists he can do no more to bring new signings to the KC Stadium before the start of the season.

Brown has endured a frustrating summer in the transfer market after a succession of strikers turned down moves to the club.

Michael Owen, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Fraizer Campbell all opted for deals elsewhere, with Bobby Zamora apparently set to become the latest player to snub the Tigers.

A £5million fee had been agreed with Fulham for the forward, but Roy Hodgson is expecting Zamora to stay at Craven Cottage.

Brown had been satisfied with the talks with Zamora and says he is pulling out all the stops in an effort to improve his squad.

"Of course I'm frustrated because I wanted to get players in and you want them in as quickly as you possibly can so you can work with them," Brown told the Hull Daily Mail.

"We need to be a bigger, better and stronger squad than last year.

"The first two weeks of our pre-season is all about fitness, but now we're to the football stage of that six-week period and you want the players in who will be playing for you next season."

Regarding his pursuit of Zamora, he added: "You do your business and hope that it falls right.

"The meeting with Bobby was positive and the communication with Fulham was positive. I can't do any more.

"You're in limbo and no man's land as a manager."

"We have put a contract on the table, a very lucrative one. We are standing firm on it. This is our evaluation of Bobby Zamora - end of story" - Phil Brown about Hull's move for Bobby Zamora, July 25.

"There's no progress on Bobby Zamora, but I'll reaffirm that the door is still open and I'll remain hopeful. We're haggling over the personal terms, but that's only normal" - Phil Brown about Hull's move for Bobby Zamora, July 31.

Hull City have had a bid accepted for Stoke City midfielder Seyi Olofinjana.

The Nigeria international is also wanted by French league side Monaco, who have had an offer of about £2.5m accepted for the 29-year-old.

But Hull seem favourites to land him after Tigers chairman Paul Duffen confirmed to BBC Radio Humberside a deal had been agreed between the clubs.

Duffen also revealed that Hull are interested in signing 19-year-old Villarreal striker Jozy Altidore.

"He's someone we're interested in but it's at very early stages," Duffen told BBC Radio Humderside.

The United States international has also been linked with Fulham and is believed to be available for about £6.5m.

Duffen has, however, ruled out a move for striker Bobby Zamora, who will be staying with Fulham.

But he added: "We hope to have two or three signings in within the next seven days."

Hull City are set to unveil new signings Jozy Altidore and Seyi Olofinjana on Thursday.

The Tigers have agreed a deal with Premier League rivals Stoke City for Nigerian midfielder Olofinjana.

Stoke have confirmed that Olofinjana is set for the KC Stadium and he is reportedly to be presented alongside America striker Jozy Altidore.

The 19-year-old highly-rated front-man is said to be arriving from Spanish side Villarreal.

Altidore confirmed the deal was done on his Twitter site, stating he is now only awaiting a work-permit - but he should be available to face Chelsea in Hull's opening game of the season.

It is believed Altidore is arriving on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

I was under the impression Altidore was decent

He's a bright hope for the US is Altidore. Done very well recently (think it was the Confed. Cup). He's a big powerful guy and is probably their Frazier Campbell replacement. It'll be good to see him in the Premier league I reckon. But we'll see.

Forlorn Hope

Said Hull manager Phil Brown about new signing Seyi Olofinjana yesterday:

"We are delighted to have them on board and both players boast international pedigree. One area we needed to address was goals from midfield and I'm hoping Seyi can help out there."

Goals scored by Olofinjana from 21 appearances last season: Two.

Both very physical players with few technical skills, Phil Brown obviously thinks they're lacking a bit of power.

Well with Geovanni there only real goal threat they need to be a bit more in your face and play like Stoke did otherwise they're going to end up like West Brom rock bottom playing nice football.

Geovanni will probably be quality till about October as usual.

Hull City are expected to announce the signings of Stephen Hunt and Kamel Ghilas at a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

Reading have already confirmed that a fee for Hunt has been agreed while reports from Spain have indicated that Celta Vigo striker Ghilas will also be moving to the KC Stadium.

Hunt reportedly agreed the personal terms of his deal with Hull before linking up with his Republic of Ireland team-mates for Wednesday's friendly with Australia.

While the winger's fee remains undisclosed, Algeria international Ghilas will make the switch from his recently relegated club for around £2million.

Once the two transfers are confirmed, it will take the Tigers' number of summer signings to four, after Seyi Olofinjana and Jozy Alditore were both recently captured.

Manager Phil Brown has recently seen his fortunes turn around after pursuing Michael Owen, Fraizer Campbell, Marc-Antoine Fortune, Daryl Murphy and Habib Beye to no avail.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't know much about Ghilas but i think Hunt is a great signing for Hull

Will certainly improve their squad, and they needed to do something or they'd have finished well adrift this season IMO.

Good signing he'll add a bit more bite to there midfield who were a bit of a pushover last season. He's also likely to contribute 5 or 6 goals like he did at Reading so it's a good move.

Yep I think it was a case of teams suprised at the football they were playing plus the fact Geovanni is a sunshine player meant he came up with a few wonders strikes then wasn't interested for the next 6 months. Once teams realised stop him and you stop Hull it was no suprise that they started getting hammered.

Phil Brown Reveals Alvaro Negredo Will Discuss Terms With Hull City This Week

Image

The Tigers boss is hopeful that a deal can be concluded very shortly...

Hull City manager Phil Brown has revealed that the Tigers could be on the verge of smashing their transfer record by signing Alvaro Negredo from Real Madrid very soon.

The striker, who spent last season on loan at Almeria, is expected to travel to England in the early part of this week to discuss his possible £12 million switch from the Bernabeu to the KC Stadium.

"Now that's out there, you're hanging out to dry, as a club that's trying to impress and trying to get better in the Premier League and now you're putting £12 million on the table. It opens the market up to everybody else," Brown told Sky Sports News.

"We've made reference to it and we can't hide that fact now. Fingers crossed, he's coming across Monday or Tuesday to talk to us."

The Tigers have missed out on a number of players this summer, with deals appearing to have been concluded, before breaking down at the last minute. One such of these was Fulham striker Bobby Zamora, who turned down a chance to join Brown at City after a £5 million bid was accepted by his club.

"Where Bobby was concerned, he came up to Hull and we just failed to agree personal terms," he explained.

"We had £5 million on the table for guy who scored four goals last year and got four assists for Fulham. But I always thought there was more to come where Bobby was concerned and lo and behold he gets the winning goal yesterday.

"If that could have been for us, we've got three points on the board."

Hull were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea in their opening Premier League fixture of the season at Stamford Bridge yesterday, with a first half goal from debutant Stephen Hunt proving insufficient to earn anything from the game.
