Danny Graham finally scored his first Premier League goal for Hull City, giving the Tigers a 0-1 lead at Liberty Stadium, but the Swans leveled the match in the second half and the Monday night battle would end in a 1-1 final.
Graham's goal was his first since wearing the opponent's kit back on New Year's Day, ending a 340+ day drought. He was set up beautifully by Ahmed Elmohamady who intercepted a lazy Ashley Williams pass and charged down the right flank, whipping a perfect cross into Graham's path. The striker would have had to work hard NOT to score. The Tigers move to 12th in the table with the road point and will hope Graham can find some confidence during the busy holiday schedule.

It has seemingly been forever since Danny Graham scored a goal and that streak continued today as he started but didn't score in Hull's 2-0 loss to Arsenal.

In fairness to Graham, it isn't like his Hull City teammates scored or even created many chances. Graham did manage one of the Tigers' two shots on target but neither really troubled the Arsenal net as the Gunners maintained their lead atop the Premier League. With the January transfer window looming though, it is fair to wonder how many more chances Graham will have left before Hull City are forced to bring in another forward (Shane Long anyone?).

On-loan forward Danny Graham will not be eligible to face parent club Sunderland during Week 10 in the Premier League.

The Hull City forward has been struggling mightily to score goals for quite some time and his ineligibility will save Steve Bruce the decision of whether to move him to the bench for at least one more week. It is likely that Yannick Sagbo will deputize this week and if he does well potentially earn the starting spot. With Sunderland both struggling and on the road Sagbo is at least worth considering this weekend.

Hull team vs Spurs: Jakupović, Rosenior, Bruce, Davies, McShane, Elmohamady, Meyler, Koren, Quinn, Graham, Boyd. SUBS: Harper, Figueroa, Gedo, Sagbo, Mclean, Faye, Proschwitz.

Steve Bruce rests a few players but it's still a strong Hull team, including Danny Graham who returns from the knee injury picked up against Everton

With Danny Graham the only forward in the squad with Premier League experience, Hull are in talks with Wolves over Kevin Doyle.

Doyle has experience making a big splash for a newly promoted team in the Premier League but it has been a LONG time since Reading's magical 2006-07 season that saw him score 13 top flight goals. The forward, who will turn 30 one month into the season, couldn't even muster double digits in the Championship last season after only 4 in Wolves' relegation season in 2011-12. The name may be familiar but Doyle is no better than a Premier League reserve and the source of fond memories at this point.

Sunderland striker Danny Graham has joined Barclays Premier League new boys Hull City on a season long loan.

Graham failed to score in the eleven league matches he featured in after his £5milion January move from Swansea (and Paolo Di Canio was clearly not convinced), but he has shown in the past that he can get goals in England's top flight, so this could be a fine loan signing for Hull. It also makes sense from Sunderland's perspective as the 27-year old was unlikely to get much football with Steven Fletcher and now Jozy Altidore both ahead of him in the pecking order. The ideal scenario would be for Graham to grab some goals during his loan spell so the club can sell him next summer and recoup most of the transfer fee Martin O'Neill paid.

Danny Graham is a loan target for Hull City after former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce confirmed his interest in the Black Cats striker.

Sunderland have Stephen Fletcher back to full fitness and signed Jozy Altidore last week so Danny Graham's chances of first team football are likely to be limited and he may well be available this summer. The striker failed to score in the thirteen matches he featured in after his £5milion January move from Swansea, but has shown in the past that he can get goals in England's top flight, so he would be a decent signing for Hull. However, one would think that Sunderland would want cash rather than loaning Graham out to a potential rival for free, so Bruce may need to raid what's left of the Hull's transfer kitty to add some fire-power to his squad.

Sunderland have confirmed the signing of US striker Jozy Altidore from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar.

23-year-old Altidore has signed a four-year deal with the Black Cats, for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £9million. As we've mentioned here previously, this is a really solid signing by Di Canio. The powerful American forward has been steadily improving over the past few years and proved his quality by scoring 31 goals in 41 appearances for Alkmaar last season. The transfer could result in the end of Danny Graham's brief spell at the Stadium of Light after the striker failed to score a single goal in the thirteen matches he featured in after his January move from Swansea.

Sunderland have agreed a fee with AZ Alkmaar for striker Jozy Altidore.

This sounds like a done deal and is a fine piece of business by Sunderland. Altidore had an unsuccessful loan spell with Hull City back in 2010 but he has improved vastly as a player since then, and the powerful forward scored an impressive 31 goals in 41 appearances for Alkmaar last season. The transfer could result in the end of Danny Graham's brief spell at the Stadium of Light after the striker failed to score a single goal in the thirteen matches he featured in after his January move from Swansea.

Dutch side AZ Alkmaar have told Sunderland to up their bid if they want to land American striker Jozy Altidore.

Altidore had an unsuccessful loan spell with Hull City back in 2010 but he has improved vastly as a player since then, and scored an impressive 31 goals in 41 appearances for Alkmaar last season. Sunderland boss Paulo Di Canio is keen on the American striker, but he will have to raise the current offer if he wants to bring him to the Stadium of Light. If Sunderland were to complete such a transfer then Danny Graham could be the man to make way. The striker failed to score a single goal in the thirteen matches he featured in after his January move from Swansea.

Sunderland have signed forward David Moberg Karlsson from IFK Gothenburg for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old Sweden Under-19 international has agreed a four-year contract at the Stadium of Light. Karlsson has only scored eight goals in 47 appearances for Gothenburg but is regarded highly by Paulo Di Canio. He is expected to take his place in the Sunderland development squad to begin with, before challenging the likes of Danny Graham and Connor Wickham for a place in the first team squad.

The Italian media understand Sunderland are tracking Livorno striker Paulinho, with a view to a £6.5million deal.

If Sunderland were to complete such a transfer then Danny Graham could be the man to make way. The striker failed to score a single goal in the thirteen matches he featured in after his January move from Swansea and this could lead to his swift exit from the Stadium of Light.

The Daily Star report that striker Danny Graham could head the Sunderland exodus with a shock £4m move to newly-promoted Cardiff.

It would be a surprise if Paulo Di Canio gave up on Danny Graham so quickly as the striker has shown at Swansea he can score goals in England's top flight. However, if Graham is not in his plans for next season then getting as much of the £5million outlay back as possible is vital for Sunderland.

Local North-East paper The Journal are reporting both Connor Wickham and Danny Graham are fighting for their Sunderland futures as Paolo Di Canio seeks a radical overhaul of his offensive options.

No goals in 13 games has seen Danny Graham's stock fall badly but he proved at Swansea that he can score goals at Premier League level so Di Canio may give the forward a bit more time to settle in. It's a different story for Connor Wickham who has struggled badly since joining the Black Cats for an over-inflated £9million two seasons ago. It has been reported that he has already had a falling our with the new manager so it would perhaps be best for all parties if he seeks a new start elsewhere.

Swansea City Manager Michael Laudrup implied that the team is looking to add new talent.

"You can't stop rumors and I can't tell you not to ask me about something you have heard," Laudrup said. "When it is one forward and then another and another, I cannot lie to you and say we are not looking for a forward." Laudrup added that team has a list of players at every position that they're looking at and could consider signing. They lost Danny Graham to Sunderland in January and certainly need more attacking options.
