Part of my heart will always be with them.

Zamora follows Bullard to Hull HULL have agreed a 5m fee with Fulham for striker Bobby Zamora, the London club have announced. The 28-year-old emerged as a Tigers target after they were beaten to the signings of Marc-Antoine Fortune and Fraizer Campbell. Hull, who signed Jimmy Bullard from Fulham in January, will now hope to meet and discuss terms with a player who managed just four league goals last season. Downing out to Villa for 12m MIDDLESBROUGH and Aston Villa have agreed a fee of around 12m for England winger Stewart Downing. The two clubs have struck a deal which could see the 24-year-old midfielder leave his home-town club for the midlands. Downing is currently recovering from foot surgery but has been promised by chairman Steve Gibson that he can leave if a big club comes in with the right terms. Hughes next on the Blues bandwagon? THEManchesterCityjuggernautcontinued to plough through the Premier League big boys today with Emanuel Adebayor on the verge of signing and Chelseas John Terry still firmly in their sights. Mark Hughes confirmed City could make a third bid for Terry as he further incensed Chelsea by suggesting their captain needed a new lease of life. He said: We would like to think we could offer him a different challenge. From my own experience, when you have been with a club a long time, you maybe get to a point when you need a new challenge, when you think a change of scenery would just re- ignite certain things within you. Hughes and his chief executive Garry Cook are monitoring the situation at Stam- ford Bridge and are expecting clarification about Terrys position later this week. Hughes added: We made an offer and Chelsea made their view plain, we have to respect that, said Hughes. But in the future we may revisit it. For now, Hughes will concentrate on the first stages of preparations for the new season when City head out to South Africa for a three-match tour. Despite initial optimism, Emmanuel Ade- bayorwillnotbeonthetripastalkscontinue over a 25m move from Arsenal. The Togo forward has a work permit hear- ing planned for today, which would provide clearance for him to make the move although, despite furious speculation to the contrary yesterday, he has yet to have a medical. The fact City are on the brink of pulling off a transfer that would nudge their spend- ing over the last 12 months towards 200m shows the intent at Eastlands. BY GEOFF TEATHER ARSENE WENGER is considering lodging a last minute bid for Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar after his move for Bordeauxs Marouane Chamakh hit a snag. The French club want veteran defender Mikael Silvestre as part of the deal which would see the Moroccan striker head in the opposite direction, but Wenger is against the idea of losing another experienced head. Huntelaar (right), who scored the first ever goal at Emirates Stadium in Dennis Bergkamps testimonial is surplus to requirements at Real. The Dutch international is already in advanced negotiations with Stuttgart but is desperate to prove he can cut it in one of Europes top leagues. He has already rejected the chance of moving to Lyon in the deal which saw Karim Benzema head to Madrid. Newcastledenyformer bossKinnearwillreturn NEWCASTLE today confirmed that Joe Kinnear is not returning as manager. There were suggestions that the 62-year-old was poised to resume at the helm as efforts to sell the club continue. However, the Magpies have released a statement insisting there are no immediate plans to bring Kinnear back. A statement said: Reports in the press this morning that Joe Kinnear is to be appointed as Newcastle United manager are not true. The position remains that the club is still in the market to be sold and is still negotiating with prospective buyers. The announcement comes in the wake of Nicky Butt pleading for a resolution to the chaos at the club. Butt said: I dont know what to say about the managerial situation. The sooner it is resolved, the better -- but we have been saying that since January but we are still in the same place.
