Juninho considers Hull option

Former Middlesbrough star Juninho is in the next 24 hours set to make a decision over whether to join Championship club Hull.

The Tigers have offered the 34-year-old World Cup winner a contract and he has spent the past few days back in Brazil mulling over the proposal.

"There are a couple of minor points that we're still talking to Hull about, but they're nothing to do with money," said Jonathan Hassall, the player's agent.

"We're hoping for a final conclusion either way by the end of the day."

The former Brazil midfielder last appeared in British football during an unsuccessful season with Celtic in 2004-05, during which he made just nine league starts and is currently a free agent following his departure from Brazilian side Flamengo in May.
