Club figure makes admission over Hull City’s transfer plans

Published

on

Hull City’s head of recruitment Lee Darnbrough has admitted to Hull Live that the club are already preparing their transfer business for beyond the next two windows. 

The Tigers were pretty busy over the course of the summer transfer window just gone, with Grant McCann and his staff bringing in no less than nine new additions as they bid to consolidate in the Sky Bet Championship after winning League One last season.

Fans of the club will certainly be looking towards the upcoming January window with hope as their club hasn’t started the campaign in the best of fashions, however it appears that the Tigers are already planning for beyond that window and the one in the summer of next year.

Outlining his vision for the future, Darnbrough was quick to state the following about his transfer plans moving forwards at the MKM Stadium:

“We always try and look 12 months in advance, so if you wait until February/March time to try and make plans then you’re probably too late. 

“Of course situations change, our job is to react to those situations.

“Having lists of names for any scenario, we could get promoted, so you have to cover every situation to the point where you have your plan in place and you can hopefully implement it as soon as possible.”

What club does James Chester play for?

Hull currently sit in 22nd place of the league standings and will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend as they play host to Coventry City at the MKM Stadium on Saturday.

A victory for the Tigers could potentially see them move out of the relegation zone if other results go their way across the division.

The Verdict 

This is a very ambitious approach from the club but at the same time it shows that they are always planning ahead despite their recent success.

Whether Grant McCann will be in place to oversee this proposed progression in the transfer market remains to be seen and for now they need to focus on improving their results on the field of play.

In addition to bringing in talented players, Hull should also make sure that they continue to produce their own via the academy, which has served them well in recent years.

Producing youngsters who can progress to the first team is far more sustainable than signing hoards of new players every transfer window and for that reason it will be interesting to see what their squad looks like in 12 months time.
