The Sun reckons Hull are getting frustrated with Bobby Zamora’s indecisiveness.
Fulham and the Tigers agreed a £5m fee for the striker around a week and a half ago, but Zamora is still hesitating over the deal. Hull have now put a £40,o00-a-week offer on the table and told Bobby that it will be their final offer.
Although it’s easy to say this from my armchair, this seems like a pretty sweet deal for Zamora, who only scored two league goals last season, remember. It would be a significant increase on his wage packet with Fulham and offer him a new start in the top flight after his move across London from West Ham didn’t go as well as he hoped.
He looked horribly low on confidence throughout the season and Roy Hodgson has intimated that it was the player who has instigated this move. Rumour has it that Zamora sought a transfer after being told he would not be guaranteed a first-team place this season. Given that Hull are the only side to have expressed an interest in signing him and placed a lucrative contract offer on the table, he would be wise to take it.
Phil Brown is desperate to sign a striker having missed out on Michael Owen, Marc-Antonine Fortune, Fraizer Campbell, Daryl Murphy and Marlon Harewood already this summer.
It would be nice to sort it out as soon as possible.
