According to a report from HITC Sport, Hull City are considering a move for goalkeeper Lee Burge, who is currently playing for League One side Coventry City.
Coventry City goalkeeper Lee Burge is attracting interest from Championship side Hull City, a report from HITC Sport has claimed.
26-year-old shot stopper Burge is out of contract at the end of the 2018/19 season and could be available on a free transfer if the Sky Blues fail to agree a new deal with the ‘keeper over the coming months.
Hull City are reportedly looking to pounce to bring him in. Hull boss Nigel Adkins is considering bringing in a new goalkeeper with David Marshall’s contract at the KCOM Stadium also set to expire at the end of the season and Burge has been identified as a potential option.
Hull were in attendance during Coventry’s 1-0 defeat to Oxford United to watch Burge as they fell to their second League One defeat in nine games.
Burge has spent his entire career with the Sky Blues, coming into the first team from the club’s academy. He spent a short loan spell with Nuneaton Borough during the second half of the 2012/13 season. He played 17 games with the club and kept an impressive nine clean sheets.
He made his way into the first team with Coventry during the 2014/15 season, making his first league start against Peterborough United. Burge has since gone on to play 152 games for the Sky Blues over the course of five seasons as the club’s number one.
