Hull City striker and Tottenham target Jarrod Bowen is not for sale, according to Tigers manager Nigel Adkins.

Bowen has scored 11 Championship goals this season and has been particularly impressive during the festive period, scoring a brace in Hull’s 2-0 win against Leeds United and bagging another goal in a 6-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers on New Year’s Day.

According to BBC Sport, Bowen is a January target for Spurs and Leeds, with speculation about a possible move for the 22-year-old increasing in recent days.

However, after Hull’s win against Bolton, Adkins revealed Bowen won’t be sold this month.

Speaking to BBC Radio Humberside, Adkins said it was “great the club are not looking to sell.”

He added: “We don’t want to lose him or any player. We are going well, climbing the table and have momentum.”

Tottenham are in need of a striker to provide cover and competition for Harry Kane, something Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen have failed to do in recent seasons.

Llorente has been linked with a January move back to his former club Athletic Bilbao.

Bowen is unproven in the Premier League but Mauricio Pochettino has a proven track record with young English players and could be tempted to make an offer.
