Transfer Talk: Tigers in dark over Beye


They shoot...


Hull manager Phil Brown has not given up on signing the Newcastle centre-back Habib Beye, after the Senegal international handed in a transfer request.

"We're awaiting discussions," Brown said. "It doesn't affect things. It shows an intention for Habib to get out of Newcastle. The fee is way above what we are prepared to go to. But the problem is: who do you deal with at Newcastle – the chairman, a coach, an organiser? We are not sure."

Bruce hopeful over Bent

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce remains hopeful of securing the services of Spurs striker Darren Bent. "There's a couple of other clubs showing interest," he said. "We will do our utmost to get the deal over the line, but I'd say it's 50-50."

Pulis waits for the apples

Stoke manager Tony Pulis is prepared to wait to bring in more players. Sunderland midfielder Dean Whitehead remains the Potters' sole summer signing. "The market will liven up but we have to be patient," Pulis said. "We have to wait for others to shake the apples from the tree, then try to make sure we are in a position to react quickly to the apples left on the ground."

Latics not in need of cash

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has again warned clubs away from midfielder Lee Cattermole. "We are in a very strong position," the Spaniard said. "We don't have to sell."
