Hull City are keen on making some further signings to bolster their squad ahead of the start of the Championship season.

The Tigers delved into the transfer window yesterday to land highly-rated Everton winger Josh Bowler on a season-long loan and defender Ryan Tafazolli on a free transfer after he impressed on trial.

The duo have joined goalkeeper Matt Ingram and striker Tom Eaves in joining the second tier side this summer.

Grant McCann’s side is starting to take shape as he looks to prepare for Hull’s first game of the campaign away to Swansea City in just over two weeks’ time.

The Tigers have not stopped in the transfer market just yet, as per a report by Hull Live, with a few more acquisitions needed to provide some more depth and competition to certain areas. Another striker is needed to provide another option to Eaves and Nouha Dicko.

A new full-back would be welcomed as well to compete with Stephen Kingsley and Eric Lichaj, as well as a new central midfielder. Liverpool youngster Herbie Kane, who spent last season on loan under McCann at Doncaster Rovers, has been heavily linked with a move to the KCOM Stadium.

The Tigers’ squad is young and you could argue they need to bring in some more experienced players with Championship experience. However, it appears McCann is willing to give youth a chance next season with the likes of Keane Lewis-Potter being given plenty of minutes in pre-season.
