Hull City are eyeing a deal to bring Stefan Marinovic to the club to help aid their surprise play-off ambitions this season according to HITC Sport.
The 27-year-old has joined Hull on a trial period, and will be hoping to make a good impression on Nigel Adkins’ side this month, but they will be in no rush to sign him.
Marinovic has been a free agent since leaving the Vancouver Whitecaps at the end of the MLS season and he’ll be keen to show Hull exactly what he can offer going forward this season.
The goalkeeper is currently first-choice with New Zealand and will be keen to secure his long-term future at the earliest of opportunities.
Marinovic made 29 appearances in total for the Whitecaps last season and would be confident of challenging David Marshall for a starting spot in Nigel Adkins’ side.
He has featured in over 20 matches for New Zealand as was a regular in their World Cup qualifying games before they were knocked about by Peru in a play-off.
The shot-stopper is far too good of an option to be without a club, and he’ll be hoping to impress in his trial period with the Tigers.
He would be ideal competition to Marshall, and it could see the best out of both goalkeepers for the remainder of this year’s campaign as Adkins’ side challenge for the play-offs.
This would be a good signing for the Tigers.
David Marshall is in need of some competition for a starting spot at the KC Stadium, and Marinovic could certainly challenge him for a starting spot.
He’ll need to impress on his trial at the club, and if he can do that, then I’m confident that he could be the missing piece in the jigsaw for Hull’s shock play-off bid.
