Jimmy Bullard can leave Hull City - Pearson

JIMMY Bullard has been told he can leave Hull City this summer – increasing the chances of him returning to Ipswich Town next season.

The majestic midfielder, whose performances on loan at Portman Road earned him the Supporter’s Player of the Year trophy, has already admitted he would love to return to Suffolk.

Now a move has edged a step closer after Hull City’s head of football operations Adam Pearson said he hoped Bullard’s end-of-season form with Town would lead to him earning a move away from the KC Stadium.

Pearson said: “He’s obviously done well down at Ipswich, he’s played some games and hopefully that gets him back in the shop window. Hopefully, we will get a club interested in him. That hasn’t happened as yet. We’ve had no enquiries whatsoever.”

The Hull Daily Mail has this morning claimed the club would be willing to let Bullard go on a free transfer. The obvious sticking point is Bullard’s �45,000-a-week wages which would shatter the Blues’ pay structure. Premier League newcomers QPR are also said to be monitoring the situation.
