Hull keen on Greek international

Hull City have confirmed their interest in signing former Bolton midfielder Stelios Giannakopoulos following his release from the Reebok Stadium.

The 33-year-old, who is currently with the Greek national squad at Euro 2008, has said he would like to stay in the Premier League.

Tigers chairman Paul Duffen told BBC Radio Humberside: "He's someone we're thinking about.

"Phil Brown admires him having worked closely with him over at Bolton."

Meanwhile, Duffen has denied national newspaper reports linking Hull with a 2m move for Turkey international striker Colin Kazim-Richards.

"There's nothing in it, his name has not been mentioned by the manager or the scouting staff," he said.

However, Duffen admits Spurs defender Anthony Gardner "is one of the players on their radar" but BBC Radio Humberside understands that a move for the 27-year old is unlikely.

West Brom defender Neil Clement is a more likely target should he become surplus to requirements at The Hawthorns.

Clement had a short but successful loan spell with The Tigers towards the latter part of last season.
