Tigers must sell before they buy

BY foxsports • December 22, 2009

Hull City chairman Adam Pearson fears he may struggle to cut the club's wage bill during next month's transfer window.

Pearson is eager to move players out to ease financial concerns at present, which is why he insists rumours linking the Tigers with potential signings are wide of the mark.

Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Pearson said: "As I have already said, there will be no new signings coming into the club unless we can cut our wage bill significantly.

"For that reason, at the moment we are not looking at any potential signings in January, and I want to make that clear.

"We have no firm interest in any of our players at the moment.

"It is very, very difficult to move players out because we are in the bottom six of the Premier League and there aren't many clubs in the Championship with funds available.

"We have to be patient. It will not be a fire-sale, it will be done in a considered manner and in the best interests of the club."
