Hull boss Phil Brown is keen to add a forward and a defender to his squad before the transfer window closes. He admits another deal is unlikely to be secured before Saturday's game against West Brom but there is hope of beating the deadline.
Brown said: "We still want to bring a striker in, someone who's a bit different from what we've got.
"These things take time but hopefully by February 2 we'll have one or two more in.
"We have got interest in a defender and there is just some negotiations to be done.
"Where a striker is concerned we have made enquiries but it is falling on deaf ears at the moment."
