Hull City are interested in United goalkeeper Tom Heaton as they hunt for a new number one. The 37-year-old, who earned three caps for England earlier in his career, joined the Red Devils in 2021 from Aston Villa and has since made three first-team appearances for the Premier League giants.

He isn’t guaranteed regular football under Ten Hag though and currently just provides back-up between the sticks to David de Gea. The Tigers’ vice-chairman Tan Kesler has confirmed that the former Burnley man is on his radar and has said, as per a report by HullLive: “Tom Heaton is on our list, he’s a great goalkeeper, he’s a great personality. Would he help us? Yes. He’s one of the names and he’s in the mix.”

Bid rejected

United have apparently seen their second bid for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount rebuffed as they continue their pursuit of the former Vitesse and Derby County loan ace. Sky Sports claim the Blues have ‘rejected’ a bid worth in the region of £50million for the England ace as they hold out for a better offer.

Mount, who is 24-years-old, is out of contract next June and his long-term future at Stamford Bridge is up in the air right now. He scored three goals in 35 appearances in all competitions last term.
