Hull`s transfer targets are starting to become sought after as deals continue to lag for Marlon King and Abdoulaye Meite.

Due to Marlon King`s insistence of a compensation package from Wigan Athletic, Hull attempt to sign the £3 million rated striker has taken longer than expected. Despite having personal terms agreed, which would involve King taking a pay-cut to join Hull City, Derby County have now emerged in the race for the striker with a loan move having the potential to be more appealing to Wigan Athletic.

Meanwhile, Hull continue to search for another centre-back to join Michael Turner and Anthony Gardner. Bolton`s Abdoulaye Meite continues to surface on Phil Brown`s radar although West Brom are also in contention.

Despite Hull`s opening bid of close to £2.5 million being rejected, West Brom are hoping a £2 million offer today will tempt Gary Megson into selling.

Greek striker Angelos Charisteas, also a target of Stoke City, waits as the two promoted team reportedly fight for the striker, although neither manager has made a comment to suggest they are that interested in the striker.

  • Really don’t think King has the right firepower we are looking for, we need someone a bit more proven, but can’t think of anyone else we could sign…..other than Fraizer obviously!

  • I think these would be 2 great signings and aint west brom just signed a centre half?Cant see King goin to Derby and if he does it be for money.

  • From what ive seen at the the European championship tournaments Charisteas looks quality. Sign him up Browny!

  • Marlon IS money driven…. He thinks his better than he is.. DON”T sign King he will upset your tight knitted dressing-room… Believe me we know…
