Bullard banned by Hull

JIMMY Bullard’s chances of remaining at Hull City are looking increasingly remote after he was given a two-week suspension by the club.

Reports in Hull say the midfielder has been suspended for a breach of club discipline.

It was initially claimed that he was given the ban after arriving late for training following a night out in London, but local reports now say it was following an incident during City’s six-day training camp in Slovenia last week.

Bullard trained with the first team squad on Friday but has since been ordered to stay away from training for two weeks, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

The news will increase speculation that Bullard will leave the Tigers, but it all depends on whether any potential suitor will match his large salary.

QPR remain favourites to secure his signature but Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell will surely be monitoring the fresh developments.

Having missed last night’s 2-1 at Winterton Rangers, Bullard is unlikely to be considered for selection for any of the Hull’s three remaining friendlies or indeed the start of the season on August 6.
