Hull hoping to coax Liverpool outcast into helping survival push
Following a deflating 3-0 defeat to Newcastle at the weekend that left Hull deep in the relegation mire, it’s widely expected that Steve Bruce’s club will be among the busiest Premier League sides on transfer deadline day.
The manager himself aired his worries that potential signings may be put off from joining the Tigers’ fight for survival if they witnessed the loss to the Magpies, Hull’s fourth consecutive loss in all competitions.
Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is among those thought to be mulling over a switch to the KC Stadium and Bruce will stick to the Premier League in his hunt for a new striker.
Rickie Lambert tops his wishlist, with the former Manchester United skipper hoping the chance to play more regularly at Hull will convince the striker to swap a plush setup at Anfield for the fight and struggle the Tigers are currently experiencing.
Daniel Sturridge’s goal-scoring return to fitness will only push Lambert further out of favour with the Merseyside club and the opportunity to secure his services, either permanently or on loan, will surely be explored by a few of Hull’s relegation rivals, meaning Bruce must act fast.
