Hull City are worried that a deal that would see Jarrod Bowen join West Ham could ‘stall’ ahead of the transfer deadline, according to reports.

Sky Sports reported earlier today that Bowen was ‘travelling to London for a medical’ with a £25m deal agreed between West Ham and Hull.

The Championship side will receive £7m in the form of add-ons with £18m of the fee being paid by the Hammers up front.

Crystal Palace were understood to be the favourites to land Bowen before West Ham agreed a fee last night, with the Eagles now ‘concentrating on other targets’.

Bowen has scored 17 goals and provided seven assists this season in all competitions for the Tigers and there has been a lot of interest in his services.

However, The Athletic‘s West Ham reporter Roshane Thomas claims that despite a deal to the London Stadium ‘still likely,’ he warns that ‘the two parties are a fair bit apart on wages’.

Thomas adds: ‘Bowen had been asking for around £60K a week. Hull are concerned the deal might stall.’
