Hull City

Nottingham Forest man already being eyed by Championship rivals for January swoop



Nottingham Forest midfielder Ryan Yates is being eyed up by fellow Championship club Hull City.

The Tigers are interested in signing the 20-year-old midfielder, according to the Sun on Sunday (Print edition, September 16th 2018), and could well look to make their move for Yates come the January window as Nigel Adkins looks to strengthen his ranks.

Yates has only recently signed a new deal with the Reds, but his first team opportunities are likely to be limited with a host of summer incomings at Forest putting paid to any thoughts he might have had about becoming a regular under Aitor Karanka.

A move might well appeal to Yates, who will no doubt have been keen to make it at Forest. However, first team football on a regular basis could well be tempting for the youngster, and with Forest tying him down to a new deal, the club would no doubt be able to command a decent fee for the youngster.

Yates has flexibility in terms of his best position and would no doubt be a useful asset for the Tigers if a deal could be struck. He spent last season with Scunthorpe United and Notts County in seperate loan spells, impressing in the main and catching the eye of the Forest staff before the summer overhaul begun.

Forest fans, what do you think? Would you sell Yates? Could he perform for Hull? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
