Wednesday transfer target Ryan France has been released from his contract at Premier League Hull City today.

The Sheffield-born midfielder was one of eight players to be shown the door at the KC Stadium, indicating a move to Hillsborough could well be on the cards.

France had been linked with a move to the Owls before the season even ended, having Championship experience in abundance with the Tigers and costing the Owls nothing.

The 28-year-old had been part of the Hull side that came from the third division to the top flight of English football after moving for just £15,000 from Alfreton Town.

Reports have claimed that France had already penned a deal with Owls boss Brian Laws, but his move for Tommy Miller, and links with former loanee Darren Potter, could have put an end to any move.
