Tigers assistant manager Brian Horton said: 'Macca was terrific with us when he was last here. He's one player we've looked at. I'm sure there'll be movement before the window closes.'

Many don't rate this quartet but the Sunderland 'fans' of that ilk don't even go to games anyway.Hull have got themselves a gem there in the Bobby Moore mould, and for a bargain of the century price at that. Outstanding athlete and leader of men, his tracking of Torres at the Stadium of Light under Keane was something reminiscent of the Autobahn. Murphy I would class as a George Best/Giggsy hybrid while Noz is the most underrated centre back in the Prem who's style of play incorporates the commanding presence of a Terry or Rio with the skill and guile of a Zidane.
