Hull City are interested in signing Burnley defender Jimmy Dunne on loan.

The Tigers could move for the 21-year-old, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

Dunne, who is a Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, could leave Burnley on loan again this summer for more first team experience.

A loan move to the Championship could be admirable for the Clarets to test Dunne at a high level.

The youngster joined Manchester United in 2007 and rose up through the youth ranks at Old Trafford. He made the switch to Burnley in 2017 but has never made a senior appearance for Sean Dyche’s side.

Instead, Dunne has gained experience from various loan spells away from Turf Moor.

His first taste of regular action came at non-league side Barrow during the first-half of the 2017/18 season. Dunne played 23 times for the National League side before ending the campaign in the Football League with Accrington Stanley.

Dunne then signed for Scottish Premiership side Hearts last summer on a six-month loan deal and made 14 appearances for Craig Levein’s side, chipping in with two goals.

Sunderland brought him in on loan during the January transfer window and he spent the remainder of last season at the Stadium of Light.

Dunne could now be set for a fifth loan stint away from Burnley with Hull keen on signing him. The Tigers are also after Norwich City winger Ben Marshall, as reported by The72.
