According to sources close to HITC Sport, a number of Championship clubs are in the hunt to sign Matty Fryatt on a free transfer.

Matty Fryatt is almost a forgotten man, having spent the last two seasons out with a serious Achilles injury.

The 31-year-old made his long awaited comeback from injury towards the end of the 2016/17 campaign but was released by Nottingham Forest.

However, he is set to be handed a Championship lifeline with a number of clubs keen on taking a gamble on him.

Fryatt’s former side Hull City are thought to be one of the interested parties.

After suffering relegation to the Championship, the Tigers are hoping to boost their attacking options to compete for promotion next term.

During his previous spell with Hull, the burly forward struck 31 goals in 72 starts.

Hull face competition from Ipswich Town and Queens Park Rangers for his signature.

Ipswich are desperate to add goals to their line-up and could take a punt on Fryatt whilst QPR are also in the market for a goal scoring striker to ease their woes in front of goal.

Whether Matty Fryatt will be the same player once he returns from injury is another question but it appears that he has options.

Available on a free agent, it would just be a matter of agreeing personal terms with a new club for the veteran forward.

Hull, Ipswich and QPR fans – would you like to sign Fryatt? Let us know below…
