Midfielder rules out move
Stoke are willing to loan out Wilson Palacios to Hull but the midfielder is reluctant to drop into the Championship.
Potters boss Tony Pulis has already allowed Jermaine Pennant to join Wolves for the next three months and Palacios could also be heading for the exit door if he agrees to the move.
The midfielder has struggled to live up to expectations since arriving from Tottenham and he has been unable to force his way into the Stoke first team in the early part of this season.
Hull boss Steve Bruce is ready to offer him the chance of regular football at the KC Stadium but the former Wigan man would prefer to battle for his place at Stoke rather than drop to the Championship.
