Hull City manager Phil Brown has revealed that the club may have to listen to any Ã¢â‚¬Ëœsilly bidÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ that may come in for star defender Michael Turner, with keen interest from numerous Premier League clubs such as Liverpool and Sunderland.
Speculation has been rife this summer with Liverpool said to have made a Ã‚Â£6 million bid which was turned down after the club valued him at twice that price.
However, with big money transfers common this summer Brown admits there is still a chance that the rising star could leave the club before the end of the transfer window.
Brown told press: “Is that his last game? I don’t know. It might be. It might not be. When people start talking silly money, sometimes you have to listen.
“We are in the year of the silly money, the silly bids. The world has gone crazy, paying Ã‚Â£25million for centre-halves, so maybe you have to listen.
“As far as we are concerned, it is not only Sunderland. There are two or three clubs interested.
“The battle to hold on to Michael Turner will be ever-increasing for the next 48 hours. Whether Michael Turner is a Hull player at the end of the international break remains to be seen.
“We have turned down bids already, in the last six weeks.”
Turner signed for the East Yorkshire side in 2006 for a fee of Ã‚Â£350,000 from lower league side Brentford and has since established himself as a fan favourite at the KC stadium, winning numerous awards as well as being only one of two players to play every minute of every Premier League game last season.
