Hull are chasing the signings of Bolton defender Abdoulaye Meite and Wolves midfielder Seyi Olofinjana, boss Phil Brown has told BBC Radio Humberside.

Meite is out of favour at the Reebok Stadium while Olofinjana has had a transfer request accepted by Wolves.

Brown said: "Meite is somebody we are interested in but suddenly the price has gone from a minimal transfer to 3m and we're not interested at that price.

"Olofinjana could play in the Premier League and I would be interested."

Brown added: "But there's been no contact and to say any more would be disrespectful as I've not talked to Mick McCarthy."

Nigerian international Olofinjana, 28, signed a four-year contract extension at Molineux last year.

Brown also revealed Plymouth have enquired about one or two of his players as part of a deal that could see Peter Halmosi move to the KC Stadium. And he is waiting for a reply from French defender Bernard Mendy.

Mendy has been offered a three-year deal by Hull but BBC Radio Humberside understands Sampdoria and Werder Bremen have made offers too.
