Hull City are tracking Aberdeen midfielder Graeme Shinnie and Hearts defender John Souttar, according to the Scottish Sun.

The Tigers are already planning for the January transfer window with a couple of potential signings in their sights.

It has been a difficult start to the season for Nigel Adkins’ side but they will be hoping they can start looking up the league and down it with a few positive results over the next couple of weeks.

Graeme Shinnie has emerged as a target for the Championship side. The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season but Aberdeen are desperate to keep him. Fellow second tier side Bristol City are also believed to be monitoring his situation.

Shinnie, who has made two caps for the Scottish national team, is versatile and can play in central midfield and full back. He joined Aberdeen in 2015 from Inverness Caledonian Thistle and has since played 150 games for them to date.

Highly-rated defender John Souttar is also on Hull City’s radar. He has been in impressive form in the Scottish Premier League for Hearts this season and will no doubt be the subject of interest from many clubs in January.

The 22-year-old has already played over 150 games in his career so far for both Dundee United and Hearts. Souttar, who like Shinnie has also played twice for Scotland, joined Hearts in February 2016.

Shinnie and Souttar would be two decent acquisitions for Hull if they can get them done in a few months time.
