Departing Manchester United star receives his first offer?

Rio FerdinandRio Ferdinand has had his first offer since leaving Manchester United and it’s one that will leave Hull City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern more than happy.

According to the Daily Mail, Tigers gaffer Steve Bruce has admitted he’s cast his eyes on the situation and may contact the player’s agent after the FA Cup Final against Arsenal this weekend.

Hull will be looking to kick on next term having finished 16th this season after fading late into the campaign following an impressive beginning to life back in the Premier League.

The 35-year-old was reportedly told that his contract would not be extended after the 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday – ending the former West Ham United academy players’ 12-year stint at the club.

And Rio Ferdinand took to Twitter to confirm that he will not be given the chance to add to his 454 Manchester United appearances.

Ferdinand heads a trio of seasoned pros leaving the club with Nemanja Vidic leaving for Italy and Patrice Evra also set for the Old Trafford exit doors.

There were meant to be big money offers on the table from North America’s MLS this season but an offer from Hull may tempt him into staying closer to home.
