Hull City are in need of signings in January to boost their chances of Championship survival. Here are five players who could be on their shopping list for January-

Ashley Fletcher, Middlesbrough- Hull saw a deadline day move for him collapse in August. Fletcher has since found game time hard to come by at Middlesbrough meaning a loan move could be on the cards for him. The72 looked at whether Hull will move for the 22-year-old striker again in January earlier today.

Ryan Yates, Nottingham Forest- Hull were linked with a move for him last month. The 20-year-old midfielder is likely to leave Forest on loan in January and he is a potential signing for Nigel Adkins’ side. Yates has previously spent time on loan at Barrow, Shrewsbury Town, Notts County and Scunthorpe United.

Graeme Shinnie, Aberdeen- His contract expires at the end of the season meaning he could leave for a cash sum in January to prevent Aberdeen from losing him on a free transfer. The Scottish international was rumoured to be a target of Hull’s last month.

John Souttar, Hearts- The promising centre-back was linked with the Tigers last month as well. He has been a key player for an impressive Hearts side this season in the Scottish Premier League and is being tipped for a move to England in the near future.

Reece Oxford, West Ham United- Hull made a late move on deadline day in August to acquire him on loan and could move in for him once again. Oxford, who is 19-years-old, may leave West Ham on loan in January to gain some more first-team experience.
