Peter Taylor has played down talk of a move for Rochdale striker Grant Holt.

Hull City are one of a number of clubs who have been linked with the highly-rated Rochdale forward, although Taylor says that the connection is a tenuous one.

"I went to watch a game between Grimsby and Rochdale and people are just guessing," he told skysports.com.

"I am after a striker in January and I'm weighing up my options as to who would be the best player to bring in."

The England Under-21 coach also dampened talk of launching a January raid across the Humber estuary, where he has been linked with giant Grimsby Town centre half Rob Jones.

"Again, I go and watch a game of football and people start talking about all sorts," he added. "I'm not one to comment on other clubs' players."
