Bruce: Hull have ended Hooper interest

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has decided against making a renewed bid for Celtic top scorer Gary Hooper as the Tigers’ search for a striker goes on.

Gary Hooper, Celtic's leading goalscorer this season, is likely to be rested ahead of the Juve clash
Gary Hooper has been heavily tipped to move south of the border this summer.

Hooper, 25, was one of Bruce’s two top targets as he looks to bolster promoted Hull’s attack ahead of their return to the Premier League.

Burnley’s Charlie Austin was the other but his £4.5 million move to the KC Stadium broke down when the former Swindon player failed a medical. Despite that, however, Bruce has ruled out revisiting his interest in Hooper.

“We had a bid for him rejected and I can’t see there being any change in that,” he told the Hull Daily Mail.

Although Hull finished second in the Championship last season, no player scored more than nine league goals for them and Bruce, who hopes to make two signings, admits strengthening the forward line is a priority.

“We’ve got other irons in the fire and we hope we can get one or two strikers in before the start of the season,” Bruce added. “It’s obvious that we struggled to score goals last season, so that has got to be the aim for us. We’ve still got six weeks before the season starts and we’re actively looking.

“I could go out and get 10 strikers tomorrow but they have to fit a certain criteria for what we are looking for. There’s no point in rushing out and buying someone for the sake of it. We have got to be patient.”

Hull have been linked with Carlton Cole, who is available on a free transfer after leaving West Ham, while Derby striker Connor Sammon has also been touted as a potential signing.

However, Derby manager Nigel Clough said he has not received an offer for the Republic of Ireland international, telling the Derby Telegraph: “We haven’t heard anything. We’ve had no contact from Hull.”
