Manchester United starlet Nick Powell looks set to depart the club once again on loan, with rumours suggesting that the Red Devils are ready to send him out to a fellow Premier League outfit in January.
According to the Daily Mirror, manager David Moyes has spoken to Hull City counterpart Steve Bruce - himself a former United star - about Powell joining the Tigers as Moyes wants to see him play in the Premier League following his successful loan spell in the Championship with Wigan Athletic.
19-year-old Powell joined Manchester United from Crewe back in July 2012 and went on to score on his debut for the club during a 4-0 rout of the Latics at Old Trafford last September.
He made one more appearance for the club during the previous campaign before joining Wigan on a season-long loan deal three months ago.
The England U21 international's time at the DW Stadium has proved to be a success, with Powell having netted five goals in 18 league appearances and also impressed with his committed attacking displays.
Although Powell remains a Wigan player for the time being, speculation has been rife of late that Moyes would recall him ahead of the January window in order to re-distribute the player to a Premier League side.
With Hull, who were widely tipped for an immediate return to English football's second tier following their promotion last season, proving their top-flight credentials in fine style in recent months, Powell - who some people hope could be Manchester United's long-term replacement for the iconic figure of Paul Scholes - could well flourish were he eventually to complete a move to Yorkshire.
