Agent insists no Hull contact for Man City's Mpenza

The agent of released Manchester City striker Emile Mpenza has dismissed talk of trials with Hull City.

"He is not on trial at Hull and there has been no contact with Hull," Rachid Tajmout told skysports.com. "He is currently training in Belgium and keeping himself fit while we look to sort his future out.

"But I have not spoken to anyone connected to Hull."

While Tajmout has played down talk of his client joining Hull, he is hopeful that Mpenza will be able to find a new club in England.

"Emile is very keen to stay in England," Tajmout conceded. "Of course there is always speculation, but the only club I have spoken to recently was Ipswich.

"There is some interest from abroad but ideally he wants to stay in England. He loves the football and living over there.

"The hope is of course for the Premier League, but if not then we can consider the Championship."
