Wouldn't Hull want to wait instead of selling him now? If he's valuable to them and proves himself for another season, they could probably get way more by selling him to another English club as opposed to what Red Bull is currently offering.
Very true, but from what little I know their owners (the Allams) are big time grifters. They might rather have the immediate profit for Lopes.
Its silly to keep throwing a little more money at them unless RBNY have some idea of how much it would take to force a sale.
