Hull City’s faint play-off hopes were dealt a significant blow on Deadline Day as Jarrod Bowen left the club in favour of a move to West Ham United.
Bowen scored 17 goals for the Tigers this season, and left a sizeable void in Grant McCann’s side for the remainder of this year’s campaign.
But Hull wasted no time in finding Bowen’s short-term replacement, as they completed a deal to sign Marcus Maddison on loan for the season from League One side Peterborough United.
Maddison netted nine goals and was on hand to provide six assists in an impressive first-half of the season, and made his first start for the Tigers in their recent 1-1 draw against Reading on Saturday.
We asked the question to Hull fans on the ‘Hull City Fans Forum’ on Facebook as to whether Maddison is good enough to be the long-term replacement for Bowen in the future for Hull City.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Facebook below….
Connor Bullock: “Bowen is irreplaceable in the championship. Think Maddison was more of a direct replacement for Grosicki. Younger with something to prove.”
Christian Palmer: “I actually think he’s a better option than Bowen. Won’t probably match his goals but will do more damage.”
Ross Major: “Thought he had a good game against reading definitely more to come from the lad just needs a few more games and a goal or two and he will be flying.”
Danny MacDonald: “No one can fill the void left by Bowen, unless you have a spare 20 mil and 80k a week.”
Peter Helsby: “Give him a chance.”
David Cross: “He won’t be here beyond this season.”
John Cross: “He’ll be brilliant for us and will sign a five year contract in the summer for City.”
Darren Wright: “Bit early to know anything either way.”
