Hull to battle Newcastle for Sheffield Utd defender Kilgallon

Hull City are planning to trump Newcastle for Sheffield United defender Matthew Kilgallon.

The News of the World says Toon are in pole position to sign the ex-Leeds star but Hull have concerns over Kamil Zayatte, who endured a torrid time in midweek against Everton.

The Tigers hope to lure Kilgallon with a three- year deal worth around £25,000-a-week.

Brown has never replaced Michael Turner following his move to Sunderland and is keen to bring in another centre-back.

He believes Kilgallon could help shore up his leaky defence as the Tigers battle to stay in the top flight.
