Balotelli a Tiger? Nice owner in Hull takeover talks

The owners of Nice are in takeover talks with Hull City.

The Daily Mail says a Chinese consortium, led by Chien Lee, owner of French club Nice, are in talks with Hull following the breakdown of a different bid from China.

Strangely, considering his acrimonious parting from Hull in 2009, former chairman Paul Duffen is one of Lee's advisers.

Championship clubs Aston Villa and Wolves are already under Chinese ownership.
