Four clubs chasing free agent Bullard
JIMMY Bullard will become a free agent after Hull City announced notice to terminate his contract.
Bullard’s nightmare career with the Tigers is set to be over although the mercurial midfielder could still appeal against the club’s decision.
The 32-year-old, whose successful loan spell with Ipswich Town led to him being named Supporters’ Player of the Year, has been suspended by Hull for the last five weeks after a breach of discipline.
Now City have confirmed they will be terminating his contract, with his agent Simnon Dent claiming that four clubs have already been in touch.
“This matter is now being dealt with by Jimmy’s lawyers and we are confident that common sense will prevail,” said Dent.

“Jimmy is still registered as a Hull player so until his player registration is released we cannot move these discussions forward.”

A statement from Hull chief executive Mark Maguire read: “I can confirm that the Club has given notice to terminate the contract of Jimmy Bullard. Mr Bullard has a right of appeal and it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time that might prejudice this process.
“The club will continue to focus on the development and performance of the squad going forward and is concentrated on efforts to deliver a positive season on and off the pitch for the Tigers.
“We respect that there will be significant interest in this matter but will continue to act with professionalism and at all times in the best interests of the club.”
