Hull City are still in talks with Manchester United over the signing of Nick Powell on loan. Earlier today it was reported by BBC Radio Humberside’s David Burns that the deal had hit a complication over agents fees. However talks are continuing, in the hope it can be concluded before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Sports Output Editor at BBC Radio Humberside Matt Dean confirms that talks are still ongoing. Considering the player needs football and Steve Bruce wants to bring him to Hull, perhaps a deal can be worked out which suits all parties in the end.
The 21-year-old has failed to make a significant impact at Old Trafford since making his big move from Crewe Alexandra in 2012. However, injury problems have certainly played a part in that. He went out on loan to Wigan Athletic a few seasons ago, and last season a move to Leicester City was cut short after his injury problems returned.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce is happy to bring him to the KC Stadium to help add competition for places after of what is set to be a crucial second half of the season for the club. Hull sit at the top of the Championship table and are now in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup after beating Bury on Saturday.
Talks are understood to be still ongoing to thrash out a loan deal for Nick Powell. #hcafc

Powell, who represented England from Under-16 to Under-21 level, is believed to be in Hull right now, although agents are supposedly causing a few problems regarding any deal being confirmed. It is very much a case of watch this space regarding this transfer.
