Hull City, Peterborough United vying to sign Gillingham’s Jack Tucker

Hull City are ‘ready to move’ for Gillingham’s Jack Tucker, with Peterborough United also in the race.

Tucker, 21, has just capped another fine season with Gillingham. The defender featured 43 times across the entire League One season for Gills, scoring one goal as he played a vital part in Steve Evans’ side.

Now though, The Sun on Sunday (23.05.21, pg. 59) reports that Hull City will move for the Englishman ‘if they can agree a fee’.

Peterborough United are also in the running to sign Tucker as per the report, with ‘growing Championship interest’ mounting in the Gills man.

Hull City secured an immediate return to the Championship under Grant McCann, winning the League One title with Peterborough United finishing in 2nd – their third promotion form League One under Darren Ferguson.

Few people expected Hull to perform how they did in League One under McCann. The former Peterborough United boss’ Hull City side finished the season two points ahead of Posh in 2nd and nine ahead of Blackpool in 3rd.

It’s Blackpool who face Lincoln City in the League One play-off final later this month.

For both Hull and Peterborough, the summer ahead will be a crucial one in ensuring that they have the firepower to compete in the second-tier next time round.

Tucker looks a real prospect and having capped an active season in League One with Gillingham, it looks as though he could be set for Championship.

No price tag is known as of yet, but if more and more teams are credited with an interest then a bidding war could quickly drive the price up.
