Hull City are hoping to move Jordan Flores on permanently to free up space within their squad, with the club still operating under EFL restrictions, as reported by The Sun on Sunday (1.8.21 p59).
The 25-year-old midfielder is already on loan at Northampton Town but the Championship club are hoping to find a permanent suitor for the Wigan-born man.
Flores arrived at the League One champions from Dundalk in January of this year, but he only managed three appearances from the bench as Tigers went on to seal the third-tier title.
Graduating from the Wigan Athletic academy, Flores made 11 appearances for the Lancashire club after making his debut in May 2015.
After loan spells with Blackpool, Chesterfield, Fylde, and Ostersund, the midfielder joined Irish club Dundalk in 2019. Flores was nominated for the Puskas award during his time with Dundalk, scoring seven times in 40 games.
Hull then signed the 25-year-old earlier this year on a free transfer for 18 months, however, it seems that his future lies elsewhere.
It is a very difficult situation for The Tigers to be in. They have just sent him on loan to Northampton, but with their situation changing, he could be brought back so he can secure a permanent deal somewhere else.
He has not seen the minutes to impress at the League One champions and has probably become a victim of The Tigers’ success last time out.
The Cobblers may jump at the possibility of signing the Championship man on a permanent deal, but that remains to be seen.
Flores still has a long career ahead of him and maybe a fresh start in League Two could be the kick he needs.
