Hull City manager Phil Brown will open talks with former Celtic striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink about signing him on a free transfer.
And Brown is also preparing an audacious bid for Standard Liege's £8m-rated attacking midfielder Milan Jovanovic.

Jovanovic has scored 56 goals in three seasons with Standard following his move from Lokomotiv Moscow.
