Hull City are preparing for life in the Premier League, however they may need five or six additions to help them in the long term.
After earning their top flight status for the second time in six years, The Tigers are looking for stability rather than short term fixes.
The club understands that short term fixing for the Premier League battle isn’t the way forward (look at QPR). This might mean that they will be looking for players, who are expected to stay with the club for longer periods. Those who have good resale value will also be appealing to them incase if things didn’t go in their favour.
Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes fits the bill perfectly in both the cases. A young striker, who joined from Huddersfield Town a season ago, had topped the clubs goal scoring charts with 28 goals in Championship. Rhodes is a potential target for a number of Premier League clubs, which includes West Brom, Fulham and West Ham United.
The 23-year-old striker is highly rated in all quarters of English football. Hull will have a tough time in convincing the youngster to join their ranks as more ambitious teams will try to lure the youngster with appealing offers.
At the same time, Rhodes may be happy at Ewood Park, and could be willing to help the club in their pursuit of Premier League Status next season.
Blackburn Rovers Player of the Year is a physical striker and possesses an impressive goal-scoring record for the clubs he has played for.
The Scotland international is a regular goal-scorer at all levels. and Hull City are in dire need of a striking addition, as their top-scorer only netted only nine goals last season. Rhodes will be a worthy addition for Hull City, who can provide the short term fix and the long term solution for the Tigers.
