Hull City wish to boost their squad before the closure of the loan window at the end of this month with the acquisition of Crystal Palace winger Sullay Kaikai, according to HITC Sport. The wide man ended last season on loan at Charlton Athletic; one of several loan switches he has had away from Selhurst Park in recent times.

The 22-year-old has also represented Crawley Town, Cambridge United, Shrewsbury Town and Brentford, but is getting to that stage of his career where he wants a permanent home, and to play more regularly. Kaikai made his Crystal Palace debut in 2014 in cup defeat to Newcastle United, a match which he actually scored.

Kaikai however has only got on to make a handful of appearances for the Eagles, and looks set for another temporary stint away. Nigel Adkins has quite a young squad at his disposal at the KCOM Stadium, and he looks set to try and add another youngster to his current crop. Kamil Grosicki is yet to appear for the club this season, and signing another winger only fuels speculation he too might be leaving the Tigers.

Roy Hodgson, the Crystal Palace manager, is very unlikely to stand in the way of Kaikai, who would realistically only break into the first team picture if an injury crisis materialised. Hull however are likely to face some competition for the player, but they will hold some confidence of landing him given they could offer him regular football. Todd Kane has been appearing as a wide midfielder this season, which is not his most natural position.
