Hull City manager Grant McCann could look to Liverpool to bring in a couple of loan signings. According to Goal, Hull want to sign Herbie Kane and Ben Woodburn on loan from Liverpool.
The Tigers finished in mid-table last season but Nigel Adkins has since been replaced by McCann, who led Doncaster Rovers to the play-off semi-finals in League One.
McCann is weighing up his options this summer but he has a limited budget. This is why loan deals might be the best approach. And he has his eyes on two Liverpool starlets.
Herbie Kane: What to expect
It is no surprise to see McCann chasing Kane. The central midfielder spent the whole of last season on loan at Doncaster under McCann and was a regular fixture in the starting line-up.
The 20-year-old showcased his ability with seven goals and 10 assists in 49 games. But he is not just an attack-minded central midfielder – Kane also does the dirty work in the middle of the park.
Kane appears to be ready to step up to Championship level and Hull is the perfect environment. McCann knows his capabilities and the England U19 starlet can test himself at a higher level.
Ben Woodburn: What to expect
Woodburn is another loan target for Hull. After a poor 2018/19 season, he will be eager to get his career back on track and he is still considered to be a top young talent.
The 10-cap Wales international spent the first half of last season on loan at high-flying Sheffield United. But he was limited to just eight appearances (no goals and no assists) before his loan spell was cut short in January.
Woodburn already has 11 senior games for Liverpool under his belt after scoring on his debut against Leeds United. However, he needs another loan spell to show Jurgen Klopp what he can do.
The 19-year-old should look at the example of Harry Wilson – his Wales and Liverpool team-mate. Wilson went on loan to Hull and scored seven goals (and registered four assists) in 14 games.
