Pearson takes legal advice after Hull sacking

Adam Pearson is seeking legal advice after being sacked as head of football operations by Hull owners Assem and Ehab Allam. The Allam family have confirmed that Pearson, the Championship club's chairman for six years from 2001, had had his consultancy role terminated "without notice and without compensation".

Pearson said in a statement: "I wish to register my extreme surprise and disappointment at the sudden, and in my view totally unjustified, termination of my agreement.

"I had very much been looking forward to assisting in the development of a successful Hull City squad this summer.

"I have enjoyed my association with the club and wish them success in the future.

"This matter is now in the hands of my lawyers and I will be making no further comment until it is resolved to my satisfaction."
