West Brom face a fight from three other Premier League clubs to sign winger Callum McManaman from Wigan.
Latics boss Malky Mackay confirmed the Championship club had turned down the Baggies' second offer for McManaman, 23, this week but they are not the only top-flight club showing interest in the ex-Everton trainee.
Mackay admitted there were four Premier League clubs keepings tabs on McManaman, who is expected to be in Wigan's squad to face Huddersfield on Saturday after serving a three-match suspension.
Hull are one of the quartet of clubs as Mackay confirmed they have made 'an enquiry'. It's unsure who the two other clubs are.
Wigan have also reached an agreement with MLS side Chicago Fire to send Scotland international Maloney to the United States, while Ben Watson has joined fellow Championship club Watford until the end of the season.
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis has not given up on his chase for Callum McManaman but insisted he does have other options.
The Baggies have made two bids for Wigan winger McManaman as Pulis looks to revamp his squad.
While Albion's second offer has not been officially rejected it is understood it will be turned down.
Pulis has also spoken to Manchester United's Darren Fletcher and remains hopeful over McManaman.
It is going on along with two or three others.
We are exploring the situation to see if we can bring him in.
We need to decide if it's a good deal for us or not and it has to be right for everyone.
The clubs have to agree but it's got to be right for the player as well.
