Burnley chairman Pearson planning major clearout

Hull City chairman Adam Pearson has hinted of a major clearout in January.

Hull, who have debts of around £9million, were warned when their accounts were published in October they would need to raise £23million to meet current liabilities if relegated from the Barclays Premier League this season.

Pearson said: "I am hoping for fringe players and players who are not in the long-term plans who can move out. Obviously that is going to depend on them getting the right clubs and right moves for them.

"There may be one or two loans or bits and pieces coming in to try to strengthen but unfortunately we are probably going to have to go with the strength we have got because the financial side is a little bit tight."
