Hull City forward, James Scott, is set to depart the KCOM Stadium this summer and head back to Scotland, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World.
Scott, 20, arrived in Hull from Motherwell back in January 2020, having impressed in Scotland with seven goals in 42 appearances.
His time in East Yorkshire, though, has seen Scott muster up just seven league starts, with a further 18 appearances coming from the bench.
The forward has two league goals to his name, as well as two goals in nine cup competitions. Last year under Grant McCann, Scott scored three times in 27 appearances, but started only three League One fixtures as Hull romped to the title.
A source has this morning revealed to Football League World that Scott is set for a move back up into Scotland ahead of 2021/22.
Hearts and Dundee United are leading the chase to sign him on loan, but there’s interest bubbling away from both St Johnstone and St Mirren, who would also be keen on striking an agreement.
All four sides will be playing in the Scottish Premiership next season.
