Fulham have accepted a £5m bid from Hull City for striker Bobby Zamora.Tigers manager Phil Brown turned his attention towards the 28-year-old after Manchester United's Frazier Campbell opted to join Sunderland. Brown also missed out on Marc-Antoine Fortune, who signed for Celtic, but has said the club are close to a deal for Sunderland striker Daryl Murphy. Zamora joined Fulham from West Ham last summer but scored only two goals in 35 league appearances for the Cottagers. The former England Under-21 international made his name with Brighton but he failed to establish himself after a move to Tottenham. He joined West Ham in February 2004 and scored 40 goals in all competitions for the Upton Park club. Hull will now hope to discuss personal terms with Zamora, although any deal may have to wait until the player returns from Fulham's pre-season tour of Australia. Brown has been keen to strengthen his attacking options and had a £6m bid for Campbell accepted by United, as well as matching Celtic's bid for former Nancy striker Fortune.
