Hull City: Nick Barmby remains suspended after Allams meeting (updated)
NICK Barmby's future as Hull City manager remains uncertain after his disciplinary meeting with club owners Assem and Ehab Allam yielded no resolution.
The Mail understands it is now unlikely there will be any developments until after the weekend.
Barmby has been suspended since Monday for comments made last month through the media, where he appealed for financial backing from the Tigers' board this summer.
The first step of a disciplinary hearing was staged between Barmby, the Allams and their legal teams yesterday but, as yet, the widely-anticipated split has yet to come to pass.

With the suspension upheld, Barmby continues to be in limbo.
Although a lack of finality from yesterday's meeting offered hope that the 38-year-old could yet return to his role as manager, it still appears an unpalatable prospect for all parties.
City supporters, who were shocked to see head of football operations Adam Pearson sacked on Monday, are clamouring for clarity in a week that has rocked the KC Stadium.
Neither the Allam family nor Barmby has been available for comment on the still unconfirmed suspension and will stay tight-lipped until the issue has been resolved.
The League Managers' Association are continuing to advise Barmby during the process, while a high-profile legal team has also been appointed to represent the City boss.
