Hull City insist they have fielded no enquiries from Wigan Athletic for Boaz Myhill, but are braced for a New Year offer for the goalkeeper.

Wigan are reportedly sniffing around the shot-stopper, while Arsenal have also been linked with a £2 million bid for Myhill.

Tigers boss Peter Taylor rates the 23-year-old highly and is determined to keep the former Aston Villa trainee at The KC Stadium.

Taylor accepts there could be interest in Myhill when the transfer window reopens next month, but revealed it would take a massive offer to tempt the Championship side into a sale.

"I haven't heard anything from Wigan and it would take one hell of an offer to even consider letting him go," Taylor told the Hull Daily Mail.

"I honestly wouldn't know what sort of offer it would take, but he's 23 and worth an awful lot of money.

"Given his ability it wouldn't surprise me if a team came in for him in January."

Though Taylor would be reluctant to see Myhill move on after two years at Hull, he concedes a switch to The JJB Stadium could interest the keeper.

Taylor added: "Boaz is a boy that wants to play football and if it means someone like Wigan in The Premiership, that might interest him.

"He would only be interested in someone better if there was a first-team place on offer."
