Hull City defender Max Clark is no closer to signing a new contract with the club, according to The Hull Daily Mail.
Negotiations between Hull and Clark have hit a snag with the club still refusing to improve the offer they proposed back in September 2017.
Clark is a summer target for Nottingham Forest, Millwall and Vitesse Arnhem, who have all been alerted to his contract situation.
The 22-year-old’s current deal at the KCOM Stadium expires at the end of this month and he will become available for a small compensation fee – either to be agreed with Hull or to be decided by a tribunal – as of next month.
Nottingham Forest have been searching for a new left-back after they were forced to play Ben Osborn there for a while last season while Millwall need someone to compete with James Meredith after Harry Toffolo was released.
Vitesse, who play in the Dutch league, are hoping to lure him to Holland after appointing former Hull boss Leonid Slutsky as their new manager.
Clark enjoyed a successful breakthrough season with the Tigers following their relegation to the Championship, playing 30 matches in total and establishing himself as the first-choice left-back.
But Hull are refusing to budge on the contract they offered him last September, which is a three-year deal with emphasis on bonuses.
Hull need to hand Clark an improved contract, at least so he has a more difficult decision to make because he seems destined for the exit door at the moment.
The former England under-17 international would be a superb signing for Millwall or Nottingham Forest, with the pair hoping to tap into his potential for a relatively small fee.
It looks like it could be a full-back swap on the cards, though, with Forest’s Eric Lichaj heading to Hull – this represents good business for all parties involved.
