Hull City's transfers are set to undergo an internal review.
The Daily Mail says Hull's transfers over the last two years are to become the subject of an internal investigation at the KC Stadium.
Adam Pearson returns as chairman of the troubled club on Monday and his first objective will be to analyse all the deals that were authorised by Paul Duffen, whose term as chairman and chief executive ended on Wednesday amid serious concerns over Hull's financial crisis.
When Pearson left Hull, who by then were in the Championship, there was around £1m in the bank and a relatively modest wage bill of £3.5m.
Little more than two years later and Hull are saddled with debts of £27m and an astonishing wage bill of £40m - ranking them among the highest payers in the Barclays Premier League and leaving them facing financial meltdown if the season ends in relegation.
