Manchester United eye move to send star to Premier League rivals

Published Add your comment

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.
