Rumour Mill-Back in for Hull's Cousin?

Rumour Mill-Back in for Hull's Cousin?

Hull striker, Daniel Cousin could still be on Owen Coyle's radar if media speculation today is true.

The 32 year old Gabon international was linked with a move to Turf Moor in the summer but the deal fell through and in the end Burnley opted to bring in David Nugent on loan from Portsmouth.

His agent,Willie McKay told Sky Sports:

'Burnley were keen on signing Daniel in August, but unfortunately the involvement of third parties in the deal saw the move fall through.Unfortunately Daniel is not figuring for Hull at the minute and like every player he just wants to be playing.
Daniel is a good professional and he is working hard in training, but it appears he is being frozen out of things.I have some options for Daniel if Hull decide they do not want to keep him.One of those options could be for Hull to pay up the remainder of his contract and let him leave.If Daniel does leave he would like to stay in the UK as he enjoys the football here.'

It is understood that in addition to the Clarets, Championside side, Cardiff City could also make a move for the player possibly via a loan.

Cousin played in the lower French leagues for Martigues and Niort before moving to Le Mans Union Club 72. He later joined RC Lens in the summer of 2004 before coming over the Channel to play for Rangers in August 2007 after signing a three-year deal for a reported fee of £750,000. In September 2008, Cousin signed for Hull City on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £1.5 million but has since struggled to make the first team under Hull's under pressure manager, Phil Brown.

Not convinced about this link. Looks like his agent stirring things up with the media and letting 'em put two and two together to make five! We may need a loan striker I suppose if Nugent has to leave, but by then Pato should be back along with JayRod so why would we need Cousin? [Edited by turfmanphil]

Willie McKay is a shabby like herbert and I wouldn't believe a word he says. There looks little doubt that Cousin will be moving on in January, but if he wants to go and play first team football elsewhere, then he should do just that, he shouldn't demand £2m from us to do so. If he wasn't so lazy, he'd still be in the first team anyway, he's certainly good enough.

Thanks for the feedback, LM, think I agree with you in general. Cousin sounds like trouble and a handful, but I said the same about Bikey!! lol ;-)

Cant see this one happening either - i expect ( all things being equal) we will try to get another loan for Nuge.

Cousin - just say no. Nugent - I reckon Coyle'll sign him on if there's the money. Do we have any kind of option to buy? Might wages be a problem? I have liked what I have seen of him.

Agreed on his agent trying to get him a deal somewhere else! hopefully we would have Paterson and Rodriguez back by then and if we can get Nugent for the rest of the season i can't see a need for another striker.

I would think a loan till end season for Nugent will be tried in first place. If we survive, Coyle is reported to want £30 million for players in 2010/11 so we could then sign Nugent on a perm if we want to?

I that the road to ruin? Survive season one on a tight budget. Then spend more lavishly (£30 million!)... and risk going down with an expensive wage bill and players who don't fancy the bus trips to Scunny, Donny and Plymouth.

£30 million is quite modest really for a Prem Lge side and I am sure Coyle will bring the right players to the club but if we are to keep surviving and maybe become a Stoke/Wigan etc I cant help thinking we are going to need a few better players and some of the older ones we have already aint gonna last forever. Exciting times though as long as we stay up. I would think the 20,000 average gates are going to greatly help financially as well if we can keep 'Fortress Turf Moor' going

Not sure this is the sort of player we want: would rather get Nuge and another, younger striker in instead of this fella, to be honest.
