The Herald reports that Sheffield United have joined Hull City in a race to sign Plymouth Argyle midfielder Peter Halmosi.The report states that Kevin Blackwell, the former Argyle goalkeeper and assistant manager, today confirmed an interest in the Hungarian international.
He was quoted on United’s official website as saying, Ã¢â‚¬Å“He is a good player and, as such, I’m always interested in good players.” Furthermore he also says, Ã¢â‚¬Å“In that regard, then, he would be in a list of good players I would be interested in.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Recently promoted Premiership team Hull City were thought to be the club in the fore to sign Halmosi. It was public knowledge that Phil Brown desired to sign Halmosi last week and moreover, according to reports claimed that his chairman, Paul Duffen, had been in talks with his Argyle counterpart, Paul Stapleton, about the player. However, Stapleton insisted on Friday there had been no offers for any Argyle players.
National newspaper reports over the weekend have also suggested that West Bromwich Albion also newly promoted to the Premier League, could be keen on getting Halmosi.
Argyle have valued the 28-year-old at Ã‚Â£3m and its seems likely that these clubs are about to start a bidding war for the Hungarian.
