It seems nothing is straightforward at the KC Stadium, with target Bobby Zamora now stalling over putting pen to paper on a deal to become a Tiger.

Hull City boss Phil Brown might be facing more transfer frustration this summer as his latest target drags his feet over a possible move.

Bobby Zamora looked all set to become a Tiger when Fulham agreed to sell the former Spurs ace for a fee in the region of £5million. But the move has yet to materialise, sparking fears that the club are set to miss out again on a player they have been chasing.

Michael Owen, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Daryl Murphy have all resisted the club's approaches and now Zamora might be added to that list.

Having refused to agree personal terms with officials at the KC Stadium, the club have issued an ultimatum to the 28-year-old: accept this final offer, or clear off.

Brown said: "We have put a contract on the table, a very lucrative one. We are standing firm on it, this is our evaluation of Bobby Zamora - end of story."

A deal said to be worth around £40,000 a week has been tabled to Zamora who managed only two league goals all year for The Cottagers last term. Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has revealed the player himself instigated the move away from West London.

Tigers boss Brown is just hopeful the matter can be concluded.

"It would be nice to sort it out as soon as possible," he said
