Marlon King says he is unaware if Hull City want to sign him permanently at the end of the season.

The Jamaican striker is on a season-long loan at City from Wigan Athletic and has scored four goals in 14 Premier League appearances.

Wigan boss Steve Bruce is happy to let the 28-year-old move on, while Tigers chairman Paul Duffen has recently hinted at a permanent deal.

However, King, who opened the scoring in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Stoke, is trying to focus on playing well for the Tigers, rather than worry about his future.

"January hasn't come, so I can't speculate on stuff," said King.

"It's all right me being happy at Hull. But if Hull don't want me then it's a different case altogether.

"The window doesn't open until next month, and I don't know anything about any move yet.

"I know it's a season-long loan - and I want to do my best for Hull City."
