Tigers Transfer Talk: Hull City weekly rumours round-up

A week in the world of wild rumours, random links and desperate denials. It's that time again!

24th January 2016

The Sunday People link City with a move for Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford. The England U21 striker, who has previous experience in the Championship with Derby and Middlesbrough, has been linked with half the league and most of the bottom feeders in the Premier League since his loan spell at Crystal Palace was ended last month. Steve Bruce admitted his interest on January 2nd but it remains to be seen where Bamford is going to end up.

22nd January 2016

RUBBISH!: In news from yesterday's pre-Fulham press conference, Steve Bruce told the press that he has not looked at Bournemouth's Lee Tomlin. In spite of Bruce quashing the story, the Daily Mail still run the link again.

On loan Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden admitted he's flattered by talk of Steve Bruce signing him permanently, questions whether he has a future at Arsenal after the signing of Mohamed Elneny and will look at his situation in the summer.

The Hull Daily Mail report that City striker Greg Luer is set for a loan move and Peterborough, Barnsley, Oxford and Stevenage are interested. Any loan move would require a recall option.

The Irish Examiner run a line on David Meyler's contract situation. Meyler is out of contract in the summer but a new deal is on the horizon and the paper quote Steve Bruce saying “We’re getting close with Meyler.”

Done deal: The Irish Examiner weren't wrong. David Meyler signed a two year contract extension to keep him at City until 2018 on the same day his daughter was born. What a day for DM7!

Rival news: Middlesbrough reportedly had a £6m bid for QPR's Matt Phillips turned down. Apparently QPR want £6.5m plus Boro winger Adam Reach. In another swap, Boro are also said to be offering Kike to Fulham, as well as £9m, for Ross McCormack.

21st January 2016

This one is a couple of days old but has only just made it through to the English press. It's also a new name. Italian site Il Corriere dello Sport report that The Tigers and Bournemouth are interested in 18 year old Monaco midfielder Leonardo Rocha Miramar. If you've never heard of him that's no surprise but he's been linked with clubs in Serie A. He's tall, Portuguese and used to be a client of "super agent" Jorge Mendes - who handles Cristiano Ronaldo. That's about all anyone seems to know about him.

Bournemouth forward Lee Tomlin, the subject of speculation linking him with Leeds this week cryptically tweeted "#decisions". BBC Radio Solent's Adam Blackmore attempted to read into the tweet adding "Maybe Hull & Leeds still interested.....and the Cherries are supposed to be keen on Lewis Cook still".

Rival news: The Mirror suggest Middlesbrough will up their bid for Fulham's Ross McCormack to £9m That figure is still £2m short of what Fulham paid for him in the first place though. Brighton are linked with a loan move for Stoke's Charlie Adam by the Daily Star while Stoke themselves offered £7m for Burnley defender Michael Keane say the Metro - the bid was rejected.

20th January 2016

A south coast journalist suggested last weekend that City might be interested in Bournemouth's French striker Yann Kermorgant. Whether there was any truth in that became irrelevant today as he joined Reading for £500k.

Rival news: Derby County are showing ambition at first team level to challenge City, Boro and Burnley for the automatic promotion spots in the Championship. However they also continue to put a lot of focus into their future. They've snapped up 16 year old striker Luke Thomas from Cheltenham and 17 year old forward Lewis Walker from Ilkeston. They add to recent deals to take Jayden Bogle and Jayden Mitchell-Lawson to Derby from Swindon in the summer. You might rememeber Derby beat City to the signing of Elefe Santos from Bristol Rovers a couple of seasons ago. Like The Tigers, they're scouring non-league for players who've previously missed the boat on pro-football.

Ex-Tiger news: Sunderland striker Danny Graham, a one time City loanee, joined Blackburn Rovers on loan.

19th January 2016

Conor Washington isn't heading for Hull. He joined QPR from Peterborough last night for around £3m. Washington will fill the void left by Charlie Austin's move to Southampton. Austin, of course, is the one that got away as far as City are concerned.

18th January 2016

It wouldn't be a transfer window without Fraizer Campbell being linked with a return to City. The Mirror today claim he is free to leave Crystal Palace and The Tigers, QPR, Wolves and Ipswich have all made their interest known. Campbell is now 28 and has been constantly linked with a return to Hull after his successful loan spell in 2007/08.

Ex-Tiger news: The Mirror also say Southampton have rejected an £8m bid from Liverpool for Ireland striker Shane Long.
