Hull have withdrawn their interest in Sunderland striker Daryl Murphy after talks over personal terms broke down.
The Tigers agreed an initial fee of £1.5million with the Wearsiders for the player earlier this week and were due to meet the 26-year-old on Thursday.
The news is a further blow to the club after also failing in their attempts to sign Fraizer Campbell, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Michael Owen this summer.
