Sunderland boss Roy Keane has denied reports linking Michael Chopra with a move to Hull.

It had been suggested Hull were lining up a move for Chopra as they look to bring in a new striker before the start of the season.

Chopra struggled to hold down a regular place in the Sunderland side last season and the signing of El-Hadji Diouf has pushed him down the pecking order at the Stadium of Light.

When asked if Hull had made an enquiry for Chopra, Keane told Sky Sports News. " No. Nobody from Hull has been in touch with me."

Keane has revealed Chopra's team-mate Rade Prica could be on the move with a number of Scandinavian clubs chasing him.

The Swedish international has failed to establish himself in Keane's plans following his January arrival from Aalborg and he could be set for a quick exit from Wearside.

"There are one or two Scandinavian clubs speaking to Rade and we'll look at that," added Keane.

"We've had one or two calls about some of our players in the last few days and I think there'll be one or two of our players moving out, even if they're on loan.

"That's something we have to look at because we have a decent number of players and, as a professional footballer, you've got to look to be playing games, so there are options that we will put to the players.

"But the bottom line is if they want to go or sit here and pick up their money."
