Birmingham City midfielder Dan Crowley is poised to join Hull City in League One, with the Tigers fending off interest from Charlton Athletic to secure his service on loan.
It’s been reported by Hull Live that the Tigers have won the race to sign Crowley on loan and confirmation of that deal will be coming in the early part of next week.
Grant McCann’s side have agreed terms with the midfielder, who is set to arrive to bolster Hull’s squad ahead of their chase for promotion intensifying.
Currently, Hull sit second in the League One table, four points adrift of Lincoln City. However, they do hold a game in-hand over the Imps and could close that gap to just a single point with victory in that aforementioned fixture.
The ultimate 2021 Hull City quiz – Can you get 24/24 correct?
Crowley began his career with Arsenal, but a series of loan moves never opened a door for him in North London and he spent two years with Willem II before moving on to Birmingham.
His career at St Andrew’s has resulted in him making 41 appearances in the Championship and scoring one goal. He has made a further four appearances in other cup competitions and scored once in the FA Cup.
His last Blues appearances came back on October 17th as Birmingham lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday.
Crowley isn’t in the picture at Birmingham and a loan move feels like it makes a lot of sense this month.
From the perspective of Hull, it’s a good piece of business too. Whilst the midfielder has hardly been a success in the Championship, he has enough about him to really stamp his authority on League One.
Additionally, beating a promotion rival in Charlton to his signature is an added boost.
Hull fans will be delighted.
