Hull unable to make new signings for financial reasons


Pearson and Barmby reflect on lack of signings

Hull City manager Nigel Pearson has revealed that he will not make any new signings while uncertainty continues over their financial future.

He told BBC Radio Humberside: "I can't do any business until we either get players out or the financial situation is resolved."

The club are reportedly having talks with the Premier League over the release of parachute payments.

Hull owe money to other clubs, said to include Stoke, Fulham and Sunderland.

The Tigers have signed only two players, Nolberto Solano and James Harper, in the summer while allowing 12 to leave following their relegation from the top flight.

It is thought that they are also tracking the availability of Tottenham Hotspur's England Under-19 midfielder John Bostock.

The Yorkshire club racked up huge debts in the Premier League and have been haunted by the threat of administration since their demotion.
