Hull are expected to bolster their depleted ranks by
signing three new players on Tuesday.
Caretaker boss Mike Phelan has had to work with
13 fit senior players following a summer of turmoil
at the KCOM Stadium.
Previous manager Steve Bruce quit over his
frustration at the lack of new arrivals following
promotion in May as Hull’s owners, the Allam
family, continued to work on the sale of the club to
a Chinese consortium.
But Phelan is now on the verge of making his first
signings at Hull and Press Association Sport
understands that will include the recruitment of a
goalkeeper, midfielder and striker on Tuesday.
It has been reported that Hendrick could be among
the trio of players, with Hull having agreed a
£10million deal with Derby for the 25-times
capped Hendrick, although Burnley are also said to
be interested in the 24-year-old.
Hendrick trained with the Ireland squad today as
he rehabs a hamstring injury but the midfielder will
fly-out to Hull tomorrow for a medical.
Former England Under-21 striker Will Keane is
having a medical on Humberside ahead of a
permanent move from Manchester United,
according to reports.
Keane, the twin brother of Burnley defender
Michael, made his United debut as an 18-year-old
in December 2010 and made two appearances
under Louis van Gaal last season.
But the 23-year-old did not start a senior game at
United and had loan spells at Wigan, QPR, Sheffield
Wednesday and Preston to gather first-team
Keane would become the latest player to leave Old
Trafford since Jose Mourinho was appointed United
manager this summer, with Paddy McNair and
Donald Love having joined Sunderland and Tyler
Blackett moving to Reading.
Adnan Januzaj, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson,
Andreas Pereira and James Wilson have also been
sent out on loan.
Hull’s capture of Scotland goalkeeper David
Marshall from Cardiff for a £5million fee is also
expected to be confirmed on Tuesday.
Marshall, 31, has made over 280 appearances for
Cardiff since joining from Norwich in 2009.
Hull are also keen to strengthen their midfield and
are understood to have met Tottenham’s valuation
of Ryan Mason.
But they have other options and are believed to be
in talks with Norway playmaker Markus Henriksen.
Henriksen was left out of AZ Alkmaar’s 2-0
Eredivisie win over NEC on Sunday, with the Dutch
media reporting that he had been given permission
to travel to England for talks with the Tigers.
But they are in danger of losing Abel Hernandez
before Wednesday’s transfer deadline, with Aston
Villa showing strong interest in the Uruguay
