It has been confirmed that Hull City were one of two clubs to have made a formal enquiry about securing the services of want-away striker Jamie Cureton as the forward finally speaks out about his decision to make a formal transfer demand.

Tonight`s Colchester Evening Gazette quote the 31-year old thus: “I will be 33-years-old when my current contract runs out next summer so I would like to be given the opportunity now to talk to the bigger teams who are interested in me.”

Cureton, whose request was hurriedly rejected by the Essex side last week, said: ‘You’re only worth what somebody’s willing to pay for you.

‘And I think somewhere in the region of £500,000 and upwards would be a great fee for the club.

‘I got to the situation earlier this summer where I sat down and took a good look at what was left of my career for the future.

‘I’m not selfish and I’m not silly. I know Colchester’s situation and I know they can’t match what the bigger teams are offering players.

‘But I’m not 21-years-old anymore and I know there’s interest in me out there.’

Cureton added: ‘This could be my last chance to play for a big club.’

Meanwhile, Hull City`s new chairman Paul Duffen admits in the same article, “We are one of those clubs that has made an inquiry about him.”

  • Four points – 1) For ‘big club’ read money, unless a top-six Championship side comes him for him.. (He even said as much himself.) 2 – The three sides most linked (Hull, Plymouth and Ipswich) are slightly bigger clubs than Colchester but not by much. 3 – Why did he have to say “500 K would be a great fee?” He’s wrong if you think that 500 k would not buy you a 20-goal a season man. 4 – As for Hull – you took Parky, so why is it not a case of ‘once bitten, twice shy?’

  • Vital Hull now reporting that Hull Daily Mail say the club will bid 500,000 for him this week.

  • Bloody Parky! Can we go back in time please. I have to disagree with you that the clubs mentioned are only a little bit bigger. In the nicest possible way, you really are a small club above where you should be (like S ****horpe) – and Luton last season!

  • Cureton might well do a good job for whichever team he plays at. He may not though, without Iwelumo. Ok – point taken; let’s just stay in the Championship until our new stadium is ready. (Please..!)
