Hull City are interested in the loan signing of Chelsea goalkeeper Nathan Baxter, according to BBC Sport journalist Matt Dean.
A graduate of Chelsea’s academy, Baxter has yet to make a senior appearance for the Blues, instead spending much of his senior career out on loan elsewhere.
His most recent move saw him spend last season in League One with Accrington Stanley, where he made 19 appearances in all competitions for the Lancashire club, before seeing that deal cut short by injury.
Are these 20 facts about Hull's five most expensive signings true or false?
Now it seems as though the 22-year-old could never the less be set to make the step up to the Championship for next season following their promotion from League One.
According to this latest update, Hull could now be keen on a loan move for Baxter for the 2021/22 campaign.

As well as Hull, it has previously been reported that Sunderland are interested in a potential move for Baxter during the summer transfer window, as they look to bounce back after missing out on promotion to the Championship last season.
This could be a decent signing for Hull City if they manage to pull it off.
Having seen George Long depart for Millwall already this summer, they do need to add an alternative goalkeeping option to Matt Ingram for next season.
Baxter is someone who would obviously fill that role, and having impressed in League One last season, you feel as though he may be ready to make the step up to the Championship, something he himself may be keen to do.
Indeed, the fact that Hull will be able to offer Baxter second-tier football next season, is something that could give them an advantage over Sunderland in this particular transfer battle, since it allows the ‘keeper to be tested at a level he has never played at before.
