Folan willing to leave Hull for right club

Out-of-favour Hull City striker Caleb Folan is not averse to moving away - but only if the transfer is right for him. The 27-year-old has already spent an unsuccessful loan spell at Middlesbrough and was then expected to join Championship side Queens Park Rangers on loan this month but rejected the move.

The player's agent Hayden Evans says the Republic of Ireland striker is not being obstructive and will move on if the offer is right.

"The deal between Hull and QPR was agreed between the two clubs and then they brought that to us," Evans told the Hull Daily Mail.

"Caleb spoke to (QPR boss) Paul Hart and he was initially interested in possibly playing for him as he knew him from their time at Leeds, but in the end he decided it wasn't right for him at this time.

"Caleb hasn't put in a transfer request at Hull City and he has a contract which runs until the end of next season.

"Obviously Hull have made it clear that they want to move him out on loan, and Caleb wants to play football so is not being obstructive.

"He just wants to make sure that when he moves on he is fully recovered from his recent injury and fully fit and able to do a job for the team he joins.

"He also wants to ensure it is a move that is suitable for him.

"At present, Hull have not come to us with any other offers, but there are still two weeks left before the window closes so he could yet move on."
