Hibs boss Stubbs denies Hull have Oxley recall option

Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs insists Hull City do not have a recall option on Mark Oxley.

Hull boss Steve Bruce has said the Tigers might have to recall shot-stopper Oxley from his six-month loan in Leith after Steve Harper suffered an arm injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Arsenal.

But Stubbs reckons the English Premier League side can only recall Oxley, who has played in all of Hibs' games this season, during a transfer window.

"He can't do it until January so that's not something to worry about just now," said the head coach, who only has untried 19-year-old goalkeeper Kleton Perntreou as back-up.
