Report: Hull willing to sell Dame N’Doye, £4 million asking price requested

N’Doye has been linked with Aston Villa, West Brom and Newcastle United.

According to a report in the Hull Daily Mail, the Tigers are willing to sell Dame N’Doye this summer following their relegation to the Championship, but are looking to make a profit on him.

The Senegalese striker only joined Hull in January, signing from Lokomotiv Moscow for a £2.2 million fee, but Steve Bruce is keen on making a profit having seen N’Doye score five goals in 13 starts.

He impressed in the Premier League despite the Tigers’ relegation, and although he is up for sale, Hull want no less than £4 million for his services. This high asking price must then be added on to N’Doye’s wage demands, which are stated in the report as being at least £70,000-per-week.

N’Doye has been garnering interest from the Premier League, with three clubs said to be interested in signing him. The Birmingham Mail reported on interest from West Brom, whilst Aston Villa have been linked in the Mirror, and N’Doye himself is reportedly keen on a move to Newcastle United, as per the Chronicle.

He is keen on returning to the Premier League, and despite his quality Hull have no qualms about losing him this summer. However, the financial demands of both player and club could stall any deal.

N’Doye is 30-years-old, and still only has six-months of English football experience. Signing him would be a risky move, and for that transfer fee it is likely all the interested clubs will look elsewhere for summer targets.
