Hull City are set to sign Everton winger Josh Bowler on a season-long loan.

The Tigers have reportedly seen off interest from other Championship sides to land the 20-year-old, according to a report by TEAMtalk.

Grant McCann’s side have so far brought in goalkeeper Matt Ingram and striker Tom Eaves from QPR and Gillingham respectively and are in the hunt for more reinforcements before the season starts.

Bowler started his career with spells as a youngster at Fulham and Aldershot Town before joining QPR in 2013.

He turned professional in March 2017 and made his first and only senior appearance for the Hoops in a Championship fixture against Norwich City on the final day of the 2016/17 season.

Bowler then signed for Everton on a three-year deal in July 2017 for a fee of around £1.25 million. His contract at Goodison Park is set to expire next summer meaning he will be keen to impress the Merseyside club out on loan in the next campaign.

He has never made a first-team appearance for Everton but a loan move to Hull would be a good opportunity for the youngster.

The likes of Birmingham City, Middlesbrough and Derby County have been linked with him in this transfer window so Hull will be looking to get the deal over the line as soon as possible.

Their fans will be hoping though that Bowler won’t be a replacement for either Jarrod Bowen or Kamil Grosicki.
