Nicky Butt attracts Premier League interest

Nicky Butt attracts Premier League interest

Newcastle United's veteran midfielder Nicky Butt has emerged as a surprise target for Premier League strugglers Hull City.

Tigers gaffer Phil Brown is keen on bringing the 34-year-old player to the KC Stadium, and may offer £1 million to tempt the Magpies into selling.

However, Butt's involvement in recent weeks in the first team has significantly altered the Toon Army's views of him, and there appears to be renewed optimism in his leadership and ability.

Toon boss Chris Hughton may opt to sacrifice Butt to reduce the club's inflated wage bill, and an offer in excess of the stipulated fee could clinch a deal for City.
