Liam Rosenior explains why Hull City have walked away from Newcastle United’s Karl Darlow deal

The latest Tigers transfer news as goalkeeper search continues

Liam Rosenior says Newcastle United’s transfer demands mean Hull City are no longer in the running to sign goalkeeper Karl Darlow from the Premier League outfit.

Darlow spent the second half of last season on loan at the MKM Stadium having arrived on deadline day in January, and Rosenior was keen to make his move permanent.

 

Initial conversations suggested a deal could be done with Darlow having just one year remaining on a lucrative St James’ Park deal, but the Toon Army are understood to want in the region of £5m for their experienced stopper.

The 32-year-old was drafted back in to start Newcastle’s 3-2 comeback win at National League side Gateshead on Saturday, amid speculation he’s closing in on a move to Leeds United, but he won’t be returning to the MKM as a City player.

“I don’t think Karl is someone that will be joining us,” Rosenior said. “Karl is someone who I loved working with, he’s an outstanding goalkeeper but the price that Newcastle are speaking about is something we can’t do this summer.

“I’m disappointed, but that’s football. My job is to give this football club the best squad possible. Can we be successful without Karl Darlow?

 

“One hundred per cent, so we move on. We have targets in the goalkeeping area. Matty Ingram gives me so much confidence, I’m not going to panic into signing a goalkeeper and we’ll keep working on our targets.

“You have lists and you work through your targets. You have your number one target, two and three. It’s the same thing that every club goes through and we’re working on those targets at the moment.”
