Hull City have turned down an approach from Wednesday for striker Matty Fryatt, according to reports.

The former Leicester City man enjoyed a successful loan stint at Hillsborough earlier this season and the Owls have looked to bring the forward in again this month.

The Tigers are prepared to let Fryatt go following the additions of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic this month but have so far repelled approaches from S6.

The deadline for permanent deals is Friday and Hull boss Steve Bruce is only expected to let the striker leave if the price is right.

Wednesday were dealt a blow with Sunderland recalling Connor Wickham from his loan stint with the Owls so Gray could go back with a new-and-improved approach for Fryatt or turn his attentions elsewhere.
