Shane Long: The striker is keeping himself away from speculation

Hull City are keen to bring in the Republic of Ireland international and their manager Steve Bruce admitted the club have had 'a conversation with West Brom about Long's availability at boardroom level'.

Despite Long's current contract set to expire at the end of the season, the 26-year-old refused to be drawn on his future at the Hawthorns.

"There's always going to be rumours with the month that we're in," Long told Sky Sports after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Southampton. "It's exciting to watch I suppose but I'll try and keep myself away from it and just concentrate on the next game."

Long was prevented from netting a last-gasp equaliser after an exquisite reaction save from Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc in their 1-0 victory at St Mary's Stadium.

"It's one of those where if it hits my studs it might go through his legs or something," he admitted.

"Sometimes goalkeepers pull off great saves and he threw himself and made himself big.

"I think it came off his toe in the end which is frustrating because I don't think I did a whole lot wrong and on another day that would have hit the back of the net."

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
