Hull City manager Nigel Adkins has confirmed that The Tigers are not in the race to sign highly rated Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott according to The Yorkshire Post.

The 23-year-old hotshot was born in Beverley and the player has recently been linked with a return to the East Riding of Yorkshire with Hull City.

A trio of Sky Bet Championship clubs are believed to have seen transfer bids rejected by Peterborough United for the youngster however Hull City boss Adkins has confirmed that the player is not on his radar during the current transfer window.

Marriott joined Peterborough United from Sky Bet League Two club Luton Town in the summer for an undisclosed fee and the player signed a four-year deal at London Road. The striker has become an instant hit with fans of The Posh with the youngster netting a hugely impressive 23 goals in just 37 appearances for his new club to date.

The striker started his career with Ipswich Town but struggled to make the grade at Portman Road and the player found himself regularly loaned out by the Suffolk club. Marriott’s two-year stint with Luton Town saw the player finally launch his senior career and a record of 28 goals in just two seasons with The Hatters earned his move to Peterborough United.
