If I hadn't just heard this on Radio West Midlands I wouldn't believe it, but I just have, so here it is for you; according to Radio West Midlands our very own right back, Luke Young, could be joining Hull, as they are speculating that a fee has been agreed.

Now, I can't believe this for a minute and I've no idea where this has come from, but like I said, I've just heard it so it's out and well, it's just a case of seeing if it happens, but I can't believe for a minute that he'd leave us for Hull.

Sure, we have Eric Lichaj and I was surprised that we purchased Habib Beye, but why would he want to leave us for Hull?

Some will speculate that O'Neill needs to sell to raise funds, some will say it is clearly the player wanting a move back up to the North East, but either way, letting Young go, would be tough to swallow.

If it happens, this would be a step backwards as Young is a better player than Beye, but that is just my opinion, but I'm sure this is just pure speculation and there is no truth in this whatsoever.
