Hull frustrated over deal for Wigan striker King

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen is frustrated over delays with their signing of Wigan striker Marlon King.

"As far as we're concerned, we've agreed everything that we can over Marlon King," Duffen told the Hull Daily Mail.

"It's a three-way situation in the transfer - one between us and Wigan, two between us and the player and, finally, between the player and Wigan.

"Two of those aspects have been agreed but it's down to what happens between the player and Wigan now. The agent has put Wigan in a very difficult position.

"I am beginning to get the impression that the move might be driven by money more than ambition.

"At this stage, it's not clear if that's down to the agent or the player."
