Hull boss Brown eyeing Euro2008 talent

Hull City boss Phil Brown is at Euro2008 scouting for potential Premiership signings.

Brown and chief scout Bob Shaw are at the European Championships to watch as many live games as possible in a bid to spot and evaluate potential new signings.

He told the Hull Daily Mail: "We need to cast the net further afield and as far afield as possible when it comes to looking for potential signings.

"The reason for that is so that in two or three years' time when we are being rung up by agents, I can say to them 'I've watched that player, I have scouting reports on that player and I know what he can do.'

"I don't want to waste my time fielding calls from agents telling me they have got the next Thierry Henry. I want to be in a position where I know who is out there and what they can do."
