HULL CITY: Marney and Zayatte set to start player exodus
HULL City's player exodus looks set to start with the Tigers accepting a bid for midfielder Dean Marney from Burnley.
Both clubs are confident the deal will go through, despite the 26-year-old City star still to open discussions over personal terms at Turf Moor.
The Mail also understands French club St Etienne to be on the verge of making an offer for defender Kamil Zayatte, possibly in the region of £2m.
They have already contacted representatives of the 25-year-old Guinean international to discuss his salary demands.

It comes as the Tigers seek to cut their wage bill from £38.9m to just £15m ahead of their drop into the Championship next season.
Marney is to meet with officials at Burnley early next week, following the conclusion of City's Premier League season at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
Although details of the bid have not been confirmed by either club, the Mail understands City will receive a transfer fee for the ex-Tottenham midfielder, who still has two years to run on his deal at the KC Stadium.
But whilst Marney appears to have accepted the need to move on given City's financial situation, convincing Zayatte to leave may be more difficult.
The 25-year-old also has another two years left on his City deal and is reluctant to leave the English game.
