Cureton Exit Looms

Colchester Valuation: 750,000

Hull City will step up the chance to prize a disillusioned Jamie Cureton away from Colchester United this weekend, after new Tigers chairman Paul Duffen re-affirmed the club’s interest yesterday.

Cureton, who scored 23 league goals last term to become Championship top scorer, is valued at 750,000 by the Essex side. They remain committed to securing his future and reportedly rejected a bid of around 250,000 from Hull on Monday.

At the time, Paul Duffen explained it was ‘common knowledge’ that Cureton had handed in a request to leave Layer Road. He added to those comments in the Hull Daily Mail yesterday, saying: “It’s a complicated situation but we are endeavouring to do something about it.”

Duffen added: “Jamie’s a quality player, I think he would fit very well into our system.”

In the wake of Colchester declaring the three-quarters-of-a-million price-tag for the forward, Duffen also said: “I think we will have some positive news early next week”, thus fuelling speculation that Cureton will swap Colchester for the KC Stadium.

Other candidates for the prolific 31-year-old are said to include Ipswich, Norwich, Leicester, Southampton, Plymouth, Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Charlton Athletic.

The Mirror also said we were interested (Burnley FC) but cant see it somehow having just got an Albanian International striker for 350k (subject to work permit)
