Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has said his side are trying to bring in a new goalkeeper to compete with Matt Ingram for the number one spot.
Hull City are being patient with their recruitment as they look to land another stopper this summer.
The Tigers drew 1-1 away at Scunthorpe United in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday evening, with Ozan Tufan on the scoresheet.
Speaking afterwards, Rosenior provided this update on his hunt for reinforcements in the goalkeeping department, as per BBC Humberside Sport: “We’re in negotiations, we’re speaking all the time. It is what it is. You have to be patient. You can jump in at something that is not quite right or you can be patient and for the right ones.
“We have got targets that we are speaking to. If we get targets, and I’m not just talking about goalkeepers, we could be in for a really exciting time.”
Hull City eyeing another stopper
Ingram is a solid option for Hull between the sticks but there is no doubt that they need someone to compete with him for top spot. Bringing in someone new as well would also pave the way for Timothee Lo-Tutala and David Robson to head out the exit door on loan to get more experience.
The Tigers have already let Harvey Cartwright join Grimsby Town for the upcoming season in League Two after spells over recent years at Peterborough United and Wycombe Wanderers. They have also allowed Harry Fisk join Shelbourne on a permanent basis.
Karl Darlow spent the second-half of last term at the MKM Stadium on loan from Newcastle United and was a hit during his time in East Yorkshire. However, although he has been on Hull’s radar in this window it appears it he going to Leeds United instead, as per reporter Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, which has forced Rosenior to look elsewhere.
