Hull City have slapped a £6 million price-tag on defender Michael Turner.

Hull will demand the fee should they fail to beat the drop this season.

Turner has attracted admiring glances from Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

The Analysis

Michael Turner is a defender that deserves more credit than he gets. Clearly playing for a less fashionable club means you don’t get the column inches or the admiring glances from football pundits but i don’t think the Hull City centre back has what it takes to make it at a club of the stature of Liverpool.

The Londoner has worked his way up the leagues since being let go by Charlton over four years ago and is now more than justifying his place in the Premier League and could even be on the verge of an England call up but his solid displays have on occasion been marred by the occasional lack of concentration and the ever present defender will have to take some responsibility for the fact that his club has let in more goals this season than every team other than bottom placed West Brom.

It will take a couple more good displays to help get his side back out of the bottom three, starting with a big battle at Bolton, but i do feel that Michael Turner has a lot more to offer Phil Brown before he considers a move elsewhere.

The Likelihood

Michael Turner to Liverpoo: Not going to happen.
