Hal Robson-Kanu: A free agent this summer

Hull manager Steve Bruce has revealed the club want to sign Hal Robson-Kanu and are “booked in for talks” with the Wales forward in the next few days.

Robson-Kanu, a free agent this summer after leaving Reading, had a starring role in Wales’ impressive run to the Euro 2016 semi-finals.

The 27-year-old scored twice at the tournament in France, the first goal the winner in a 2-1 group stage victory over Slovakia and the second a superb effort in the 3-1 last-eight triumph over Belgium.

Bruce, quoted by the BBC on Monday, said of Robson-Kanu: “We are booked in for talks with him and to see him in the next few days. Do we intend to offer him a deal? Yes.”

Bruce also stressed Hull are not the only club hoping to recruit Robson-Kanu.

“I think Hal is a good age, has had a sort of rebirth if you like, of playing through the middle, because before that he has played wide most of the time,” Bruce said.

“He is big, strong, powerful, quick and somebody who runs the other way, in football terms.

“I know we have got competition, so let’s see what we can do.”
