Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has confirmed that his club are interested in taking Bobby Zamora to the KC Stadium.

The Tigers have apparently got an agreement in place with Fulham to sign Zamora once Roy Hodgson has signed a replacement striker. With the Pawel Brozek deal reportedly close, the Zamora transfer could go through sooner rather than later. There will be those who crow about Zamora’s departure having decried his contribution last season. Not me – I thought his presence up front helped us to play in a style that proved mightily effective.

Still if Brozek can replicate his goalscoring form for Wisla Krakow in the Premier League, we’ll all be laughing. Zamora will, of course, team up his old his Fulham team mate, the injured Jimmy Bullard, at Hull.

Here’s what Duffen said:

We have an understanding with Fulham but nothing will happen unless they get a striker in.

The Daily Mail also reports that we’ve made a £500,000 offer for the MK Dons left back and son of our coach, Dean Lewington.
