Playoff hopefuls prowl over United starlet

Published Add your comment

Hull City manager Nick Barmby is keen to bring Manchester United's Josh King to the club to compliment his side's attacking style.

Having returned from an unsuccessful loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, King is being targeted by The Tigers for a January move to help boost their promotion bid.

With Aaron McLean linked with a move to Brighton & Hove Albion, Barmby is likely to be keen to bring in a replacement front-man, and in King, the new boss sees the ideal candidate.

"We have got a chance and if we can do it, then great," said Barmby.

"We've got a chance for other players as well so have cover, but I've seen Josh King play quite a few times.

"I really like him. He's a very good player who's quick, got a good stature and can play in a number of positions.

"He's an exciting player but we'll have to wait and see if we can get something done."

The departure of Nigel Pearson had coincided with an upturn in Hull's fortunes, with Barmby, earlier this week permanently appointed as manager at the KC Stadium, guiding the club to 6th in the Npower Championship.
