Hull set to sign duo

Hull are set to sign trialists Matthew Fletcher and Conor Henderson on permanent deals.

Both Henderson and Fletcher got on the scoresheet in Hull's reserve game against Doncaster in a 4-0 win.

Henderson, formerly of Arsenal, scored a free-kick and did enough to impress reserve team manager, Stephen Clemence: "Conor (Henderson) is someone who we've had in training for the last couple of weeks.

"He didn't quite make the grade at Arsenal, but he's always had the potential. There's more to come from him.

"He scored a free-kick and played some lovely passes around the pitch so we've been impressed. He's someone we'll look to try and do something with."

The other player on trial, Matthew Fletcher, was previously known to Clemence, as he was a coach at Sunderland whilst Fletcher was with the youth team.

Australian striker, Fletcher, is currently without a club after parting ways with Sheffield Wednesday in the summer but managed to grab two goals in an impressive performance at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday.

"Matthew Fletcher is another one we'll look to talk to in the next couple of days. I had him at Sunderland as an 18-year-old.

"He's an Australian boy who's gone to a few other clubs since then. I think he's come on and improved, so he could be someone that can help the group."

It remains to be seen what role Henderson will have at the club. After spending many years in the reserves at Arsenal one would expect Henderson to want first-team action, but he would only be on the fringes at Hull.

With a midfield packed to the rafters including players such as Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore, Stephen Quinn and David Meyler, forcing his way into the first team picture could prove problematic.
