Duffy Permanent Move Unlikely?

Duffy Permanent Move Unlikely?

Darryl Duffy's Permanent move is looking unlikely due to a rumoured £500,000 price tag put on him by Hull city Manager Phil Brown.

Swansea city were favorites to secure the permanent services of the Scot after a successful loan spell at the club at the end of last season; which nearly secured a place in the playoffs.

Hull city Striker Daryl Duffy On the transfer speculation as reported in the south wales evening post:

'''Apparently there a few teams in for me, but I don't know that for sure because it's just speculation.

.I haven't spoke to Roberto Martinez for a few weeks. He said he'll let me know if there's any news that concerns me, but at the moment I'm in the dark.'''


Tigers boss Phil Brown has also indicated should Duffy do well in pre season he may secure a spot in the side. In spite of this there was a glimmer of hope for Swansea city.

Hull City Striker Daryl Duffy On his conversation with Brown as reported in the south wales evening post:

'''I've been to see Phil Brown and basically he's said that he's happy to keep me at Hull...He said if I have a good pre-season and score a few goals then I will start the season...But he also said if the club gets a good offer for me and I want to leave he will not stand in my way'


Duffy's contract expires in 12 months time and Hull face losing him on a free transfer .It would be wise for the club to cash in on him whilst the opportunity has presented itself.Roberto Martinez must be commended for his stance over his transfer policy, if the price tag put on Duffy is correct. In the past we have been held to ransom over players and have paid more than we should have.

Granted we would all be disappointed if Duffy did not secure a permanent switch to the Liberty Stadium but we must not be held to ransom over Duffy's signature.

no its not !! we have let our forwards go too cheap too easily in the past ... about time we made a stance .. I for one reckon he will be great for us (hull) this season after a good pre season under his belt ... Brownie will give him a chance ...

I agree with the last paragraph of the article. If Duffy was coming to us, then he would have signed by now. Because we would like to sign him then Hull believe that we will pay any price. 12 months ago we might have done, but we are now wiser & will not rush into this. We may find someone cheaper who will also do the job.

Now that we have Mr Scotland with us we allready have 4 proven forewards! Aswell as the players coming through the youth ranks. If Duffy was the right price then we should have gone for him but with Hull placing a stupid price tag on him we should just let him be and see if we can get him next season! Good on Roberto if he has told Hull where to go!!!!

Ridiculous price for someone who Hull did'nt value Duffy until he came to Swansea, the man said himself that Hull had not been in contact with him during this time and that he wasnt sure if they'd watched him. They just looked at his record at Swansea and over priceded him based on that and the fact that Swansea are keen to sign him. I can see the price dropping gradually as Swansea, Aberdeen etc. start to look elswhere. I think Duffy will stay at The Circle next season, start in the reserves, or struggle in a struggling side and Hull will grow to regret their aqrogance in slapping £500,000 on his head.

Hartlypool have now made it official that they have made an offer for Duffy and that it is in the region of £120,000. We should definately consider making an offer if Hull do consider Hartlypools offer.
