Sky Sports understands Hull City are considering making a transfer window move for Notts County midfielder Alan Judge.
The 23-year-old, who has just one year remaining on his current contract, recently turned down the offer of an extension with the Meadow Lane side.
Judge insisted at the time that he was not looking to leave the Magpies, but his decision has alerted a number of clubs to his possible availability.
And Tigers boss Steve Bruce could now be ready to make an offer to the League One side as he looks to bolster his options in the middle of the park.
Judge began his career on the books of Blackburn before making the permanent move to join Notts County in January last year following a successful loan spell with the club.
