Hull City are due to begin talks with Fulham striker Bobby Zamora within the next two days. The clubs have agreed a £5 million fee for the former Brighton, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham man, with Phil Brown's side now needing to agree terms with the 28-year-old - who has been in pre-season action for the Cottagers in Australia - in order to seal the deal. "Bobby landed on Friday afternoon and was suffering badly from jet lag so needed the weekend to rest," said Brown. “Hopefully Monday, Tuesday I'll be sitting down with Bobby, bringing him up here and showing him round." Brown will be desperate to recruit Zamora, having already suffered snubs by Manchester United’s Fraizer Campbell and Nancy’s Marc-Antoine Fortune, who elected to join Sunderland and Celtic respectively. The Tigers have also been linked with Manchester City striker Benjani, Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton and Chelsea youngster Jack Cork, but the club have now denied interested in the trio.
