Hull City manager Phil Brown has denied the club could be set to land Blackburn striker Maceo Rigters on loan.

The former NAC Breda striker is growing disillusioned at life in Blackburn's reserves and has hinted at a loan move away from Ewood Park.

However, Brown has distanced himself from the Rovers striker, stating no contact has been made with Mark Hughes' side.

"There's been no contact with Blackburn," Brown told the Hull Daily Mail.

"It's a simple case of it being that if we think there's a player out there who can improve what we've got, then we will consider it."

Welsh boost

Meanwhile, The Tigers have been boosted by John Welsh's return to full training following a long-term injury.

Welsh has been out of action since breaking his leg in March and now Brown expects the former Liverpool youngster to be challenging for a first-team place within a month.

"John is now in full training and it will be another week or so before he is able to play his first full game," he continued.

"There's going to be a lot of work to do before he's up to match fitness. The fitness levels at the club are a lot higher now.

"But full credit to him. He's had a great attitude since the injury and I fully expect him to be knocking on my door in the next few weeks asking when his chance is coming."
