Premier League trio chase Celtic striker

Hull City, Swansea City and Sunderland are all planning a move for Celtic striker Georgios Samaras, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Greek striker is stalling on a new contract at Celtic park, and is reportedly keen on a second chance at the Premier League.

The 29-year-old previously had an unsuccessful stint at Manchester City, but has gone on to score regularly in Scottish football.

However, clubs in both Turkey and Spain are considering making an offer.

Steve Bruce considered signing Samaras in January, before opting to bring in Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic.

But Bruce may reignite his interest in the summer to add more firepower to his Hull side, who have enjoyed an excellent return to the Premier League, as well as a place in the FA Cup Semi Final.

Swansea and Sunderland both considered January moves for Samaras, and may look again in the summer, with both sides struggling for goals this season.

A Sunderland move will depend on whether Gus Poyet can save the Black Cats from relegation.

The Capital One Cup finalists occupy 19th place in the Premier League, but have as many as three games in hand on teams above them.
