Nancy admit Hull may lose Fortune to West Ham, Portsmouth

Nancy admit a move to Hull City for Marc-Antoine Fortune is now in doubt.

The Daily Mail says West Ham have now entered the race for the 27-year-old in a quest to gazump favourites Hull and the Parkhead club.

With Wolves, Portsmouth and Fulham amongst six clubs competing for Fortune's signature, Celtic representatives will travel to Paris this morning in the hope of salvaging a reunion between Tony Mowbray and his former West Brom loan signing.

Fortune seemed destined to join Hull over the weekend after his club, Nancy, insisted on Friday that Phil Brown's side were 'clear favourites' to land their in-demand forward.

Nancy's sporting director Nicolas Holveck revealed a changing picture yesterday, however, when he said: "We had expected the business with Marc-Antoine to be concluded by now but other English Premier League sides have now entered the picture."
