Hull City

EFL boss remains coy amid pursuit of Leeds United player



Hull City boss Grant McCann has remained coy on new signings, with the Tigers continuing to be linked with Leeds United midfielder, Robbie Gotts.  

Gotts was involved from the bench last night for Leeds in a League Cup defeat to the Tigers.

Alan Nixon confirmed yesterday that Hull were back in the mix to take the 20-year-old on loan this summer, but Leeds’ decision on the midfielder’s future is likely going to depend on where he gets the most game time.

Grant McCann joined Hull following his stint at Peterborough. True or false?

On the back of victory at Elland Road, McCann confirmed he was in the market for another midfield signing, but refused to be drawn on individuals. 

“We’re still working hard. We’re looking in two areas, the attacking area and in midfield. We’re working very hard on trying to add to the group, really,” McCann told BBC Humberside, as per the Hull Daily Mail.

“I’m not going to speak about anybody else’s players, I’m not about that.

“People will like to speculate and people will come and say things – ‘there’s a bid from here and there’s a bid from there’, that’s not for me.” 

Gotts has made only three appearances for the senior side at Leeds, despite numerous appearances in the matchday squad.

He started last season’s FA Cup defeat to Arsenal in January, then stepped off the bench for a Championship debut against Cardiff City in June.

Last night was his third senior appearance, but Gotts was not involved in the matchday squad on the opening day of the Premier League season.

The Verdict

McCann might have boosted his chances of signing Gotts after knocking Leeds out of the League Cup.

It’s quite clear that Gotts will be a fringe player at Leeds in the Premier League, so Hull can undoubtedly offer the midfielder more minutes.

The noises coming out of Hull are coy, but there’s clearly interest in Gotts and, with almost a month of the transfer window remaining, you’ve got to expect there to be movement.
