Hull City may be unable to retain the services of on-loan Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone due to the Gunners demanding a £1m transfer fee.

Hull City's chances of signing Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone on a permanent basis may be dealt a blow by the Gunners' valuation of the player.

The 24-year-old stopper signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium in January 2010, but has since made only one appearance for Arsene Wenger's team.

Mannone has impressed during three loan spells at the KC Stadium, making 31 starts, and Tigers boss Nick Barmby is said to be keen on keeping him.

According to The Sun, Arsenal, who paid £350,000 for the Italian in 2005, are demanding £1m to let him leave and Hull are not prepared to pay such a high fee.

Mannone's only Gunners appearance this season came in the 3-1 defeat to Olympiakos in December.
