Hull City need to strengthen their squad before the loan window shuts at the end of August. Here are ten players they could look at signing on loan-
Brendan Galloway, Everton, LB- Hull need another left-back as back-up/competition for Stephen Kingsley and he would be ideal. The 22-year-old has previously spent time on loan at West Brom and Sunderland.
Callum Elder, Leicester City, LB- The Australian defender spent last season on loan at Wigan Athletic and helped them win the League One title under Paul Cook.
Oliver Norwood, Brighton, CM- He has been the subject of interest from Hull, who have had three bids rejected by Brighton for him. Nigel Adkins could now try and loan him with a view to a permanent deal in January.
Jacob Butterfield, Derby County, CM- The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and could leave the Rams again on loan for this season having fallen down the pecking order at Pride Park.
Harrison Reed, Southampton, CM- The 23-year-old played 43 games for Norwich City last season and impressed for the Canaries. Could Nigel Adkins raid his former club Southampton to bring him to the KCOM Stadium?
Sulley Kaikai, Crystal Palace, LM/RM- He is an exciting winger who would offer Hull another option out wide. The 22-year-old impressed for Palace over pre-season but is not a guaranteed starter for them.
Callum Gribbin, Manchester United, LM- The 19-year-old is a promising talent and Hull would be able to give him some first-team experience.
Danny Ward, Cardiff City, LM/ST- The former Rotherham United’s future at Cardiff City is in doubt after their promotion to the Premier League and he an option for Hull. He scored 12 goals for Rotherham in the 2016/17 season in the Championship.
Billy Sharp, Sheffield United, ST- If the Blades sign a couple of strikers before the loan window shuts, then Sharp could become available. He worked with Adkins at Southampton and Sheffield United.
Tomer Hemed, Brighton and Hove Albion, ST- The Israel international has fallen out-of-favour at Brighton and could leave them on loan. He has scored 17 and 13 goals in his last two seasons in the Championship.
