Given Set For Premiership Lifeline!

Hull are being linked with a move for veteran goalkeeper Shay Given, who will be allowed to leave Aston Villa on loan next season.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce has made signing a new goalkeeper one of his top priorities and as his attempts to land Kasper Schmeichel continue to stall, he could now turn to Given.

The 37-year-old was demoted to second-choice at Villa Park last season, with US star Brad Guzan impressing between the sticks for Paul Lambert's side, and a move looks to be on the cards.

Given's future now looks ever more uncertain and Lambert is happy to let the former Newcastle number one leave this summer, either on loan or on a permanent basis if the right deal emerges.

Hull are in the running but face strong competition from Celtic, the club where he began his career, and he could relish a return to the Glasgow giants in the twilight of his career.

The Ireland legend, who has played over 600 club games for Blackburn, Swindon, Sunderland, Newcastle, Manchester City and Villa.
