According to the Daily Mail, stand-in Hull City boss Mike Phelan has urged the clubs owners to provide him with the financial backing necessary to add firepower to a heavily depleted squad, in order to compete with their Premier League rivals.
Despite making a terrific start to the season, everyone involved with the club will know just how vital it is that Hull make signings, with the club yet to bring in any new faces following their play-off promotion from the Championship.
The suggested takeover of the club hasn’t helped with the lack of signings, but with the transfer window slamming shut on August 31st, it’s a case of now or never for the newly promoted club.
Phelan himself has said, “If you’ve got the right character and you’ve got the right determination and you fancy coming to Hull as a football player, then we will have you.’
‘Let’s get some in. Let’s get some quality in that raises the standard.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Hull will run out of time in their quest for new players, but if Phelan does get the opportunity to strengthen before the window shuts, expect Hull City to be one of the busiest clubs, in terms of transfer activity, over the coming days.
