Hull City have fielded two bids for Max Clark, according to The Hull Daily Mail.
The Tigers have received offers from an unnamed Championship side and a foreign outfit for the young defender, but they have rejected these in the hope that he might remain at the KCOM Stadium.
Nigel Adkins is desperate to keep Clark at the club and has offered the soon-to-be free agent a new deal, alongside fellow out-of-contract quartet Michael Dawson, Abel Hernandez, Moses Odubajo and Seb Larsson.
Hull would be entitled to a compensation fee for their academy product if he does leave the club this summer, as he has been with the club since he 2006 – when he was just 10-years-old.
This report believes that Clark could cost about £400,000 for any potential suitors.
The 22-year-old has played 30 games for the Tigers this season, including 25 starts in the league, and is considering his options ahead of a make-or-break summer for the young man.
The Championship club interested has not been revealed but the left-back, who can also play as a winger, has previously been linked with Millwall and Nottingham Forest.
Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem are thought to be the other club to have made a bid with new manager Leonid Slutsky keen to reunite with Clark after handing him his debut earlier in the season.
Clark’s allegiance to Slutsky could play a key role here – the Russian showed the youngster some faith when he easily could have brought in someone else to replace him.
And after a positive year, Clark is showing signs that he will just get better with more game time as he grows increasingly comfortable with the Championship level.
He is good going forward and getting better defensively so perhaps staying in a familiar environment at Hull could be a better option than taking a risky move to Holland or trying to fight his way into the first-team at Forest or Millwall.
