Milliyet Spor report Hull City are still showing a serious interest in Fenerbahçe pair Gregory van der Wiel and Emmanuel Emenike.
The Tigers recently appointed Marco Silva as their new manager after the departure of Mike Phelan, and the Portuguese man is keen to add to his squad in this window.
Fenerbahçe are trying to get rid of Van der Wiel due to the Dutchman’s discipline issues. Milliyet say Van der Wiel has accepted a move Hull City on loan, but Fenerbahçe want to get rid of him permanently because of the player’s attitude.
Fenerbahçe president Aziz Yildirim is very angry with the defender and has reportedly said: “I don’t want to see this kid around here again. We have to try to sell him permanently.”
A concern for Hull City is matching Van der Wiel’s current salary which is around £140k a week.
Milliyet said Hull City have also contacted Fenerbahçe with regards to their striker Emmanul Emenike and have made a loan offer to the Turkish club.
Emenike spent last season on loan with West Ham United and Hull City may want to use his experience playing in England as they look for an alternative to Abel Hernandez.
However, Fenerbahçe have again rejected this offer as the Turkish giant have made it clear they’ll only sell the pair on permanent deals.
Hull’s loan offers are now being widely reported in the Turkish media, but the Fenerbahçe line remains the same – they want permanent deals. That could of course change closer to the end of the transfer window.
Whilst Fenerbahçe want permanent transfers over loans, they may soon have to choose loans over nothing at all.
