Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Oliver Norwood could set to reject the chance to return to Fulham on a permanent basis in favour of moving to Hull City instead, according to The Mirror’s Live Transfer Blog [Sunday 22nd July, 22:17].
Fulham were hoping to sign him for £1.5m following his loan spell at Craven Cottage last year but Norwood sees more first-team opportunities at Hull.
The Tigers are keen on both Norwood and his Brighton team-mate Jiri Skalak as Nigel Adkins eyes a summer revamp at the KCOM Stadium.
Norwood played 41 games for Fulham in their promotion winning campaign but was largely used as a substitute towards the end of the season.
With the Cottagers now playing Premier League football, the 27-year-old is concerned about his playing time.
Hull are now looking more likely to sign the Northern Ireland international, who started his career at Manchester United before spells with Huddersfield Town and Reading.
Norwood will provide Hull with a like-for-like replacement for Seb Larsson.
The midfield man is a ball player with a nice range of passing, the ability to hit the odd spectacular long-range effort and he is a threat from set-pieces.
At Championship level, Norwood is a shrewd acquisition, especially at this price.
