Out-of-favour Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood is a target for both West Ham United and Hull City, according to the player's agent. The 30-year-old recently scored five times in 15 games during a loan spell at Newcastle United and seems set to end his Villa Park misery this month. Agent Phil Sproson told the Hull Daily Mail: "I have spoken to both Phil Brown and Gianfranco Zola and both said they were interested in Marlon if they can get the deals sorted at their clubs. "Phil said he is still interested in Marlon and that he has watched him a couple of times recently. "He said that he had been impressed that Marlon has clearly got the bit between his teeth again, but he said he had to get two or three players out before he could bring anyone in. "That is where we left it, and it is a similar situation with West Ham. "Both clubs have registered their interest, but because of their situations they have not taken it further as of yet."
