Van der Meyde resists Hull interest

Andy van der Meyde has turned down interest from Hull City.

Andy van der Meyde has turned down interest from Hull City.

The News of the World says the winger is still searching for a new club after his contract expired at Everton following an unhappy spell on Merseyside.

After training with Blackburn in the summer, the Dutchman hoped to win a contract with Sam Allardyce's club.

However, Allardyce did not pursue his interest - even if he is believed to have put in a word to his pal Phil Brown at Hull.

Van der Meyde, 31, is desperate to find an Eredivisie club instead.

"Blackburn Rovers were interested but a youngster did well in the pre-season," he told the Dutch press. "So there was no room for me.

"I will return to the Netherlands. I could go to Hull but I can't see it happening.

"I miss Holland and just want to play football and not really earn an absurd salary."
