Jimmy Bullard wants �2.5 million out of Hull City
TOWN midfielder Jimmy Bullard is seeking �2.5 million compensation following his acrimonious departure from Hull City.
Bullard joined Ipswich in August on a free transfer after being released from the divisional rivals.
But his season has so far been marred by below-par performances on-the-pitch and his legal proceedings against Hull off it.
Now the Hull Daily Mail have reported that Bullard is claiming �2.5 million from his previous employers after the 33-year-old had two years left on his contract at the KC Stadium.
Following the release of the Hull City’s accounts, the club claim they are “of the opinion that the company has a valid defence” to Bullard’s claim.

Speaking yesterday, Blues boss Paul Jewell said of Bullard: “He’s not been very good and shame on some people who cast aspersions on him that he had some kind of New Year’s Eve illness.
