Steve Bruce has played down reports he is poised to make former England striker Emile Heskey his first signing at his new club Hull City.
The 34-year-old had been linked with a move to the KC Stadium after being released by Aston Villa this summer after his contract expired.
But Bruce says he has got no plans to reunite himself with the striker he signed for Birmingham and Wigan as his priorities are the other end of the pitch.
"It's people putting two and two together because he's played for me twice, at Birmingham and Wigan," Bruce told Radio Humberside.
"I like him as a player and he's done really well for me in the past but I've not had any conversations with him.
"You haven't got to be a rocket scientist to work out that we don't have a goalkeeper at the club.
"We thought we were close to bringing Brad Guzan here but he's decided to stay in the Premier League.
"My number one priority is getting a goalkeeper in. We've got irons in the fire but there's some very good keepers out there at the moment."
