Hull owner dismisses move for Brough

Hull FC owner Adam Pearson has rejected claims that the club is trying to sign Danny Brough.

Brough has been linked with a return to his former club after reports surfaced that he had fallen out with Huddersfield Giants head coach Paul Anderson.

The 33-year-old has been stripped of the captaincy at the Giants and been replaced by Ryan Hinchcliffe, fuelling speculation of a rift between the two.

He has since been linked with a move away from the Giants, with Leeds Rhinos and now Hull FC the two clubs most prominently linked with a move for the Scotland international.

However, Pearson insists that the club will not be making a move for Brough at this time.

“I think the talk comes down to the fact that he is such an exceptional halfback, but he won’t be coming to the club,” he said.

Brough played for Hull FC between 2005-06 before moving to Castleford.
