The former Tigers star has yet again been linked with leaving Bradford to return to his hometown club, but the 36-year-old has refuted the rumour printed in yesterday's Mirror.

He told the Telegraph and Argus: "Every time the transfer window comes up I'm linked with them and I don't know where it comes from.
"I turned down a Premiership club in August when Wigan came in for me so why would I want to go to Hull?
"As I've said before, as long as Colin Todd is at Bradford City I will never want to leave. I want to get into the top six with this club and I think that we can achieve that with Colin."

Peter Taylor seems more likely to move for Falkirk's 8-goal striker Darryl Duffy, valued at around £200,000.

The City manager told the Daily Record: "I have an interest in the player but I can't say much more than that at the moment."

A £150,000 bid was reported to have been made by City to the Scottish Premier League side in June but nothing came of it. His contract expires at the end of the season, and he is currently considering a 2½-year offer from Falkirk. Watford are also said to be interested in the Scotland Under-21 international.
