Hull City have confirmed that Celtic have made initial enquiries about taking midfielder Jimmy Bullard on a season-long loan deal next term.
Speaking to The Scottish Daily Express, Hull chairman Adam Pearson said;
“We are aware that Celtic have an interest in Jimmy Bullard. They haven’t made a direct approach to me, but I know officials from Celtic have spoken to a number of people on our coaching staff about Jimmy Bullard.
Everyone is aware of our financial predicament and we would have to consider all offers. If Celtic were to make an offer for Jimmy Bullard, whether it be a permanent transfer or a loan deal, then it is something we have to give serious consideration to.”
31-year-old Bullard is the Hull’s highest earner and, following their recent relegation, The Tigers are keen to alleviate him from their wage bill.

And, of course, I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to post this classic clip of Bullard repeatedly lousing up his Premier League ‘profile’ shots.
I don’t know about you, but this never gets old – no matter how many thousand times I watch it!
