Hull City preparing bid for AC Milan star Sulley Muntari

[one_fourth last=”no”]File:Hull City.svg[/one_fourth]Hull City manager Steve Bruce is plotting a potential January transfer window bid for AC Milan midfield enforcer Sulley Muntari. The Tigers just splashed out £14m for striking pair Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long and manager Bruce is now looking to add some steel and determination to his midfield, as Hull look to avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.

After a decent start to the season, Hull have now managed only 1 win in 5 Premiership games and they sit just five points above the drop zone. It’s been away from home where the Tigers have struggled and Bruce feels Sulley Muntari can add an extra dimension in midfield to make them more competitive.

The Ghanaian international star has featured often for AC Milan this season, starting 13 Serie A games and scoring 4 goals in the process. But the i Rossoneri has seriously struggled in the Italian top flight this campaign and owner Silvio Berlusconi moved quickly recently replacing manager Massimiliano Allegri with Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf.

Seedorf immediately dropped Muntari for his first game in charge at the San Siro, a 1-0 win over Verona on Sunday and it is rumoured that he does not fit into Seedorf’s tactical set-up. Muntari was close to Allegri and he recently expressed his disappointment over the Allegri sacking.

Allegri sensationally took Muntari on loan from local rivals Inter Milan in the 2012 season and wrapped up his signing at the end of that loan spell on a free transfer. The 29-year-old has gone on to make 44 Serie A appearances for AC Milan, netting 8 times.

Muntari previously played for Hull boss Bruce at Sunderland in the 2011 season, he joined the Black Cats on loan for 6 months impressing many in his short time at the club. Muntari also played for Portsmouth in the Premier League during 2007-2008, winning the FA Cup that season and his senstational form saw him secure a £12.7m transfer to Italian giants I Nerazzurri.

Muntari’s contract expires in the Summer and AC Milan are keen to secure some money for the player rather than see him leave on a free transfer and Hull City chairman Assem Allam has sanctioned a £4m bid for the midfielder. A source close to player has suggested to the Daily Star newspaper in England that Muntari would be keen on a return to the Premier League and that he would be very interested in linking up with Steve Bruce again.
