MAX Gradel’s future remains up in the air entering the final day of the transfer window.

Eddie Howe, speaking at today's pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrows’s clash with Crystal Palace, said Cherries were yet to receive any bids for the winger.

But Howe also said he would be open to allowing the 29-year-old to leave Vitality Stadium.

A cluster of clubs, including Watford, Aston Villa and Birmingham, have been touted as possible destinations for Gradel, who has just returned from Africa Cup of Nations duty.

But Cherries’ Premier League counterparts Hull City have now emerged as frontrunners for his signature.

“We’ll wait and see on that one,” said Howe. “Max obviously hasn’t had a lot of game time with us so that’s something we’ll reflect on and then try to make the best decision for his career.”
