Hull City are refusing to comment on a report that they could be edging closer to a takeover by Asian Investors.

The Hull Daily Mail is reporting the club’s owners are in advanced talks with a group of investors from China and Hong Kong.

The newspaper says Dai Yongge and Hawken Xiu Li tabled a bid for the Tigers last week and that representatives of their consortium were shown around the Cottingham training base on Monday.

A spokesperson for the Premier League club would not comment on the latest speculation regarding any imminent takeover, though it appears there is still interest in taking the club off the hands of owners Assem and Ehab Allam.

The Allam family have been open to offers for the club since 2014, when the initial attempt to rename the club ‘Hull Tigers’ was denied.

Fans are protesting against the family’s handling of affairs at the KCOM Stadium this weekend.

Just three weeks ago the club issued a statement insisting discussions regarding their sale had been put on hold so that it could concentrate on summer transfers.

Hull City are currently without a manager after the resignation of Steve Bruce.
