Hull City remain keen on League Two midfielder with loan-to-buy deal an option

Hull City remain keen on Swindon Town midfielder Michael Doughty, as per the Shields Gazette.

Fellow Championship side Brentford as well as League One outfit Sunderland are also showing an interest in him. Clubs have until Friday night to loan players, with loan-to-buy in January deals also possible.

Hull City are in desperate need of some new players before the deadline with their squad looking threadbare. The Tigers have not signed anyone for six weeks and will struggle this season in the Championship unless they can bring some more bodies in over the next 72 hours.

Swindon Town midfielder Michael Doughty has emerged as an option for Nigel Adkins’ side. He has scored 5 goals in 5 games so far this season in League Two and is a man in-demand now, despite only returning to Swindon in July on a permanent basis from Peterborough United. He had previously had two loan spells  with the Robins from QPR.

Doughty started his career at QPR and rose through the youth ranks at Loftus Road. The 25-year-old went onto play 14 times for their first-team, including 3 games in the Premier League, but gained most of his senior football experience out on loan.

He had spells at Woking, Crawley Town, Aldershot Town, St Johnstone, Stevenage, Gillingham and Swindon before leaving QPR permanently last summer to join Peterborough, before heading back to Swindon last month.

It would be a surprise to see Doughty leave Swindon already but after an impressive start to his season, the Robins could face a battle to hold onto him over the next couple of days with Hull, Brentford and Sunderland being linked.
