Daniel Batty could make a return to the Hull City squad tomorrow against Sheffield United, according to their official club website.

The young midfielder has been ruled out for the past couple of games but returned to training on Thursday. His fellow midfielder Jackson Irvine, who was taken off in the Tigers’ last game against Leeds United due to an Achilles injury, could also make a return to the side.

Hull will be without defender Jordy de Wijs and midfielder Evandro who have ankle and hamstring injuries respectively and are aiming to return after the international break next weekend.

Daniel Batty’s availability for the Sheffield United fixture is a big boost for Nigel Adkins’ side. The 20-year-old has burst onto the scene at the KCOM Stadium and has impressed for the Yorkshire side in central midfield.

He started his career at Leeds United but was released at Under-16’s level so joined Hull. He progressed through the youth ranks of the Tigers and made his senior debut in an EFL Cup tie away to Doncaster Rovers in August 2017.

Batty then had a loan spell in the National League last season at FC Halifax Town to gain some first-team experience and played for Hull on the last day of the season away to Brentford.

He has played seven games so far this campaign for Adkins’ side and has impressed their fans. His return to the squad tomorrow is a timely boost for Hull and they will be looking for a positive result at Bramall Lane.
