'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Two Linked With Moves Away

News about Shane Long to Hull City just won't go away, and now we have Malmo circling Markus Rosenberg.

Hull's interest goes back to the last transfer window but the last 48 hours especially news and speculation has again gone wild, and it wasn't that long ago that Steve Bruce was rubbishing reports that a deal had been done, and we of course had the Tweets from his partner saying he was staying put and wanted to stay put as well as a whole host of other things, including that talks were slowly progressing on a new contract.

Earlier today there were quotes from the striker saying simply that if Albion want him to leave then he'll be off, but that's a bridge he'll cross when he gets there because he's focused on training and football not the transfer window and the ever growing speculation.

The player is obviously out of contract in the summer, but the club hold an additional 12 month deal in their favour, but especially as the day has drew on reports are becoming more common that the two clubs are in fact in talks over a deal that would see Long move to Hull initially for 4million, but with clauses that could see the overall deal worth in the region of 6million over time.

Within the last hour there are a few reports saying that those conditions have now been agreed between the clubs, so the 26 year old Republic of Ireland international is now set to undertake personal talks with them.

I know we have options, but Long is an asset for us and I'd be sad to see him leave should it now actually happen this window.

As for another departure, despite being under contract until the summer of 2015, Markus Rosenberg hasn't really featured for the club since joining us and hasn't hidden his disappointment at not being given a good run in the side to see how he could properly adjust to the league, and Malmo's interest does stretch back but now it appears they are ready to make a proper move for the striker.

Chairman Per Nilsson has said in quotes carried by the Birmingham Mail that contact was initiated via former sporting director Per Agren, and he now hopes to conclude them.

'It's no secret that we want Markus. Per Agren has talked to him but has not succeeded in reaching an agreement regarding a transfer. We want to bring him here, but it's also a matter of the right conditions.'

Seems likely that both will be in fact departing this month then.
