Hull could be set for a battle on their hands to keep hold of young defender Josh Tymon, according to the Stoke Sentinel. 

The 18-year-old defender has been impressing for the Tigers as he has developed into a first team player, making a handful of appearances last season in the Premier League.

It now looks like his form and ability has attracted firm interest though, with Stoke City Chief Exec Tony Scholes confirming that the club ‘like the look of him’.

Tymon could now be set for a move back to the Premier League should Stoke firm up their interest further with a solid bid, and it would surely be a move which would be too hard for the young England man to turn down ahead of the new campaign.

Scholes added in his interview: “He would fit the bill in a number of ways, not least he’s a very talented young Englishman with experience in the Premier League. So it’s fair to say he’s one that would fit the bill, like a number of players, and we are looking at a number of players and a number of different options.”

Hull will be hoping to keep hold of their squad, but have already lost Harry Maguire this week to Leicester while there remains doubts over the futures of the likes of Andrew Robertson, Sam Clucas, and Tom Huddlestone.

Hull fans, what do you think? How good is Tymon? Let us know your thoughts!
