Hull City manager Peter Taylor has accepted Scunthorpe United's bid for striker Kevin Ellison, but says the player is delaying the move.

The Tigers have been criticised by Glanford Park boss Brian Laws for taking too much time over a deal offered at the start of May.

But while the club have now accepted United's £100,000 bid, Taylor claims the 27-year-old winger Ellison is still weighing up his options.

"Right now it's dragging on a little bit and I imagine Brian is getting a little bit frustrated," the Tigers boss told the Hull Daily Mail.

"They've offered £100,000 and I've accepted it, so the rest is down to Kevin now."

Taylor has also confirmed his interest in Luton Town captain Kevin Nicholls, who was integral to The Hatters' promotion from League One as champions ahead of Hull in 2005.

But the former England Under-21 boss dampened talk of a deal by revealing he has not made a move for the midfielder.

"Kevin Nicholls is a very good player and you've always got to be on the look out for good players," Taylor explained.

"But I haven't taken any steps to try and bring him to the club, and that's all there is to it."
