Hull City have made a £2.5million bid for Nancy striker Marc-Antoine Fortune. Tigers manager Phil Brown confirmed the offer for Fortune whose representatives will meet City chairman Paul Duffen to discuss personal terms. The 27-year-old, who spent four months on loan last season with West Bromwich Albion, scoring five goals in 17 matches, has also been linked with Wolves and Celtic. Fortune impressed Brown during his spell at the Hawthorns and the Hull manager said: 'Marc-Antoine Fortune is a player we're interested in. We have discussed terms with his club and I would say we're probably one of three serious contenders. 'We've done our business with his club and we remain hopeful. 'He caught the eye and captured everyone's imagination in the second half of last season.'
