Key reason emerges behind Hull City’s failure to secure transfer for 28-cap international

Hull City targeted a move for Nottingham Forest full-back Richie Laryea this summer but the Reds preferred a quick and temporary return to Canada for him, according to a report from Hull Live.

The 27-year-old arrived at the City Ground in January but failed to make a real impact in the first team during the second half of the 2021/22 campaign, with Djed Spence establishing himself as an undroppable figure on the right-hand side.

And with Jack Colback being preferred on the left, that limited the Canadian to just five league appearances, with all of these displays coming during the latter stages of the campaign as he made just one start for Steve Cooper’s side.

Quiz: Can you name which club Hull City signed these 25 English players from?

Who did the club sign Matty Ingram from?

His chances of winning a regular starting spot at full-back haven’t improved despite Spence’s departure, with Harry Toffolo and Omar Richards available on the left and Neco Williams and Giulian Biancone potentially competing at right wing-back.

Recruiting 12 players this summer, some of their fringe players have seemingly become completely surplus to requirements, with the likes of Xande Silva, Braian Ojeda and Nicholas Ioannou either moving on temporarily or on a permanent deal.

Laryea is another player that is set to move on with Toronto set to take him back on a temporary spell.

The Verdict:

For the player, it makes sense for him to move on considering the fact he probably won’t get too much game time in the East Midlands during the upcoming season.

There’s a small chance he would have got the opportunity to shine in the English top flight – but that chance was minimal and he couldn’t rely on injuries and suspensions to provide him with that opportunity.

For Hull, the fact they have missed out on him is a small blow because of the fact he can operate on both the left and the right as well as in midfield, possessing real versatility that could have been useful to Shota Arveladze.

He probably would have been a reasonably cheap addition too considering he isn’t exactly one of the first names on the teamsheet at Forest, so a loan deal and a permanent agreement may have been affordable.

However, the fact Acun Ilicali is in talks with an alternative target is a promising sign and this could make this latest transfer blow insignificant. There’s plenty of time to go in the transfer window too, so they shouldn’t panic about this position yet.
