Who the f**k does Phil Brown talk to on that thing?

The Rumour

Hull City boss Phil Brown wants to sign Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin – after running into problems finding a new forward.

Brown would like to take the powerful Ukrainian on loan with a view to a permanent move following Voronin’s return to Anfield from a similar spell in Germany.

Voronin spent last season at Hertha Berlin after failing to make a big impact in his first season at Anfield, although he did manage six goals in his 13 League appearances.

The Ukrainian star, who is 30 tomorrow, had previously played in Germany for Mainz, Cologne and Bayer Leverkusen before moving to Liverpool Voronin has been told by Reds boss Rafa Benitez that he will get a chance in some games next season, but he wants regular first-team action and could be interested in a move to the Tigers. Benitez could be persuaded to do business if Hull agree to pay a loan fee – and Brown is getting so desperate to sign a striker that he may agree to that arrangement.

The Analysis

Rafa Benitez gave Ukrainian misfit Andriy Voronin a Liverpool lifeline by giving him starting places in the club’s first two pre-season encounters and suggesting that the former Bayer Leverkusen man could still have a future at Anfield.

Now however Hull City boss Phil Brown is sniffing around and if indeed the Tigers put in an offer of a permanent nature then I am pretty sure that the manager would take it with both hands and perhaps it would in the best interests of Voronin himself to become a big fish in a relatively small pond.

However hard the 29 year old tries he will still find it next to impossible to get a good run in the team, mainly because they have proven very capably that they do not need him. It’s very likely that Rafa will look to bring in one more striker in the summer and that would make it even tougher for the ponytailed on to make it back in the starting eleven.

The Likelihood

Voronin to Hull City: Whether its a loan deal or a full transfer I think Liverpool will seek to complete the deal.
