Van der Meyde rejects bumper Hull offer: I just want to play

Andy van der Meyde has turned down big money at Hull City to continue his career in Holland.

The Daily Star says he had a trial with Blackburn in the hope of landing a permanent deal but failed to impress boss Sam Allardyce.

Hull had shown an interest in landing him on a free transfer and were willing to offer him an £18,000-a-week deal until the end of the season.

But Van der Meyde said: "I will return to the Netherlands. I could go to Hull, but I can't see it happening.

"I miss Holland and just want to play football and not really earn an absurd salary."
