According to an inside source at Hull City, Darryl Duffy is ”likely to be told he’s not wanted at the club.”

Today, the Western Mail reports that the Championship club will also want between £100,000-£150,000 for the striker.

The League One Player of the Month has expressed his interest in making his loan move at Swansea permanent and it looks ever more likely he’ll be joining.

It could well be a decision Hull may regret in the future, as he quickly made an impact at the Liberty Stadium after scoring 5 goals in as many games.

Hull fans also agree as they think they’ll be making a big mistake if they sell the striker.

The club source said: “Darryl met with Hull boss Phil Brown this week and it looks likely he`ll be told he`s not wanted at the club,” said a source close to Hull.

“But Hull will want at least £100,000 to £150,000 to try to claw back some of the money they paid Falkirk for him.

“He`s been a success at Swansea, but Danny Wilson is also a big fan and with promotion could have the money to come in with an offer.

“Darryl`s quite a home-town boy and probably wouldn`t want to move too far away from Glasgow.”


Newly promoted Hartlepool are also interested in signing Duffy, but it has to be said Swansea are still strong favourites.

I think it has been pretty clear for a while that he doesn’t want to stay at the club if he isn’t a first-team regular, and I can’t see that happening. I don’t think we will recoup all of our money that we paid for him but I think we can sell him for around 100k.

Bearing in mind the type of money Swansea have paid for other players and the goals Duffy has scored, I think we could get £200k for him especially as other clubs will be interested.

mark my words, I am adding this thread as a favourite as we speak as in 5 years time (probably less!) he will be in the premiership and we will be where we are now!!

Duffy is enjoying it at Swansea because they play his type of football, and he is very much an into box player. Alongside him is Trundle and we all know what a class act he can be. Amazing he (Trundle) has not gone to higher things.
The Hull City long ball does not suit Duffy. My advice to him is to grab the chance to join Swansea as he is wasting his time at the KC unless we can recruit better quality players. Swansea are heading for the Championship sooner rather than later anyway.
