Curo: It Could Be My Last Chance
It has been confirmed that Hull City were one of two clubs to have made a formal enquiry about securing the services of want-away striker Jamie Cureton as the forward finally speaks out about his decision to make a formal transfer demand.
Tonight`s Colchester Evening Gazette quote the 31-year old thus: "I will be 33-years-old when my current contract runs out next summer so I would like to be given the opportunity now to talk to the bigger teams who are interested in me."
Cureton, whose request was hurriedly rejected by the Essex side last week, said: 'You're only worth what somebody's willing to pay for you.
'And I think somewhere in the region of £500,000 and upwards would be a great fee for the club.
'I got to the situation earlier this summer where I sat down and took a good look at what was left of my career for the future.
'I'm not selfish and I'm not silly. I know Colchester's situation and I know they can't match what the bigger teams are offering players.
'But I'm not 21-years-old anymore and I know there's interest in me out there.'
Cureton added: 'This could be my last chance to play for a big club.'
Meanwhile, Hull City`s new chairman Paul Duffen admits in the same article, "We are one of those clubs that has made an inquiry about him."
