Hull have ruled out selling star defender Michael Turner.
Turner is believed to be attracting the interest of Liverpool and Manchester City after impressing at surprise package Hull this season.
The big defender has been instrumental in Hull's success this season in their first campaign in the top flight and his performances have not gone unnoticed.
However, Hull chairman Paul Duffen has warned off any club making a move for Turner or any other Tigers star insisting the club have no plans to sell any of their first-team regulars.
"There are no players that have regularly played in the first team that we are going to be selling in January," Duffen told The Mirror.
Meanwhile, Hull boss Phil Brown has played down talk linking the club with a move for former star Fraizer Campbell.
Campbell, who is currently on loan at Tottenham from Manchester United, has been linked with a January switch to the KC Stadium.
However, Brown insists there are no plans to move for Campbell in the January transfer window.
"We can't look at him because he is not even Spurs' player" Brown told the Hull Daily Mail.
"Who do we talk to ?
"Do we talk to Manchester United, and who do Manchester United then talk to, do they then talk to Tottenham?
"There would have to be an agreement between those two clubs first before anything could happen. We are a third party in any deal.
"It just becomes a vicious circle. It is too complicated at the moment to even talk about Fraizer Campbell.
"Of course we would still be interested in Fraizer. He has always been on our radar, everyone knows that.
"Are we going to make a £7m move for Fraizer? Who knows, we might have moved past that and gone on to spending less money for more experienced players."
