Hull City

Liverpool duo could be playing in the Championship next season

Hull City are looking to raid Liverpool of two young players, according to Goal.

The players in question are Herbie Kane and Ben Woodburn, both of whom are wanted on loan by The Tigers.

New Hull boss Grant McCann is very familiar with Kane, having managed him last year at Doncaster, where the 20-year-old played 47 times in a year loan spell with the club, and played an important role in the club reaching the play-offs.

As a result, it is a deal which would once again suit all parties, with Liverpool knowing they can trust McCann to give Kane game time, and help his development further.

Woodburn meanwhile has not enjoyed as much game time as his Liverpool team-mate. He made 11 appearances for the first-team before joining Sheffield Untied on loan in January, where he scored one goal in seven games but struggled to break into the promotion-winning side.

Hull will be able to offer both first-team football next season, and that could be decisive in persuading them to join the club.

The Verdict

Pulling off these signings would be a real coup for Hull, as they would be adding real quality to the squad without spending a lot of money, which is what they need right now.

It is a bonus that McCann and Kane have spent a year together too. Kane will know what is expected of him and McCann will know that he can depend on consistent performances throughout the season, and he could even become a key player for The Tigers like he did at Doncaster.

Loan signings were key for the likes of Aston Villa and Derby last season, and if Hull can replicate that by signing this duo then they should be in for a successful season under their new boss.
