Worrying, very worrying!
Hull City’s hopes of surviving a second season in the Barclays Premier League took a blow with the admission by manager Phil Brown that he will struggle to keep Michael Turner.
The defender was outstanding in Hull’s first season in the top flight but Liverpool have tabled a bid for Turner and Brown fears the 25-year-old will want to leave.
Target: Turner is wanted by Liverpool boss Benitez
Liverpool’s offer is believed to be around half of Hull‘s £12million valuation of the player but Brown said: ‘(Liverpool boss) Rafa Benitez has an evaluation of Michael and so do we but we are miles apart.
‘I would dearly love to keep Michael. I’ve spoken to him on numerous occasions and when big clubs come calling, a young man’s head can be turned. (Daily Mail)
Some sources are claiming that this deal could well be completed any time soon, with Hull giving up ground in terms of their valuation and a deal in the region of £10m being discussed. I hope this is not the case because it just doesn’t seem like a good bit of business to me.
It’s not that I don’t think Michael Turner is decent, because that is exactly what he is, decent. Not a player I could ever see being good enough to wear a Liverpool jersey, unless it was just being worn as he goes about his daily business, maybe when out shopping or when he goes on a night on the town, just not in any official capacity!
