Hartlepool caretaker manager Chris Turner has revealed "talks are ongoing" with Hull striker Dean Windass over a loan move - but admits he is not confident about concluding a deal.

Since Windass` availability and Pools` interest became public knowledge earlier this week, a host of clubs have now enquired about signing the veteran forward.

Turner told PoolsWorld: "It came out in the press on Tuesday. I spoke to (Hull manager) Phil Brown and got his permission to talk to Dean and it`s snowballed from there."

He added: "I`ve had two good conversations with Dean but because it came out in the press, it`s alerted other clubs.

"We`ve given him the opportunity to come here and the decision now rests with Dean Windass.

"Talks are ongoing but now there are Championship clubs in for him and he wants to play another year, that might win the day for him."
