Sulley Muntari has committed himself to the AC Milan cause, dampening Hull's chances of completing a deal for the midfielder.
Tigers boss Steve Bruce has been monitoring the player's situation at the San Siro and it looked at one stage as though a deal could be on the cards as Muntari has become frustrated with the Italian giants.
It has been a season of struggle for Milan, but following the arrival of Clarence Seedorf as manager, Muntari appears ready to knuckle down and help them climb the table.
Bruce was willing to pay £4million for the former Portsmouth man but the Ghanaian now seems happy where he is.
"Seedorf is a marvellous professional and I have played with him and against him," Muntari revealed. "Clarence knows the club well and he will help us. I hope that everything will go well now.
"I would really like to do well in the Champions League and the Coppa Italia even if the Scudetto looks at this moment to have slipped away.
"I have to admit that it's horrible to look at the league table and see where we are but we will work hard to climb the ladder."
