Hull City currently sit mid-table in the Championship, and after some early impressive results this term it seems Grant McCann’s men are on for a fairly bland finish to the season.
City picked up some memorable results during the first half of the season including away wins at promotion-chasing Fulham and Nottingham Forest.
They came in reach of sniffing around the play-off places earlier this term but inconsistency has blighted their season.
It seems that McCann’s side will be playing Championship football next term and like any summer it will be expected that players will come and go from the KCOM Stadium at the end of this season.
Here we take a look at two players who will surely be eyeing a fresh start in the summer…
Balogh arrived at the KCOM Stadium in the summer from Italian side Palermo after scoring two goals in 12 appearances for Apoel Nicosia last term.
The Hungarian had to wait six games for his first appearance in a City shirt but suffered a calf injury during his debut against Nottingham Forest back in October.
Grant McCann revealed he had allowed the 23-year-old time off from the Hull City camp in December as he continues to fight injury frustration.
The forward’s contract is due to expire in the summer and he may look to get out of Hull at the end of the season and put this season behind him as quickly as possible.

Nouha Dicko joined the Tigers back in 2017 on a three-year deal and scored two league goals in 16 Championship games for the club last term.
This season Dicko is playing his football in the Eredivisie side Vitesse on a season-long loan.
After failing to really make an impact at the KCOM last term, it seems likely that Dicko could be heading for the door this summer if he fails to impress manager Grant McCann in pre-season.
Should Dicko depart the club, he will hope he can replicate the scoring form he had at Wolves, where he netted 38 times in 108 appearances for the West Midlands club.
