Hull City: Tigers' Transfer Rumor Mill

With the weekend totally lost to football because of the unusually bad winter weather and the only visual offerings on the television are Manchester United or Arsenal games (who wants to watch those two crumby teams, anyway?), it was time to take a look at who or what are on the rumor radar for the Tigers for this transfer window.

Hull City Chairman, Adam Pearson has had his work cut out trying to find funds for the club since taking over from Paul Duffen. The club have a huge unsustainable wage bill of over £39 million, and Pearson feels the clubs needs to have a more manageable wage structure in the region of £30 million.

To this end it means players going out and not coming in. However, Pearson has said that if the club can lose five or six players then Brown will be able to bring some much needed steel in up front. He has also told Brown to target loan signings to fill the voids that any sales may cause. He has even said that all, and any players can be sold if the right price.

However, Pearson, who has been working hard behind the scenes to bring in further investment to the club, feels that any further investment in the club probably won't manifest itself until the summer when the club learns which division it will be playing in next season.

Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail, "We have made progress through various different routes of trying to inject short or medium term money into the club, but at this minute in time there is no definitive news in any investment partners at all.

"I would envisage it will be more likely to be the summer before we entice people to invest.

"The present situation is that people in January look at a Premier League club and want to know where it is going to be in the summer.

"In my opinion, it would be more likely that if somebody wanted to buy into the club, they would do so in the summer months when they know the status of the club.

"I am where we expected us to be at this stage....It is difficult to bring investors into the club part-way through a season when you don't know where you're going to be at the end of it."
