Hull City are planning an ambitious £10 million bid for Cardiff City pair Ross McCormack and Joe Ledley.

Tigers boss Phil Brown has also been linked with Sunderland centre-forward Daryl Murphy and told the Hull Daily Mail: "Joe Ledley, Ross McCormack and Daryl Murphy are all names who have been bandied around but it is important that we do our business behind the scenes.

"We've got a couple of medicals that will hopefully be successful this week and I've also got open dialogue with a number of players."
