Hull City have made an enquiry over the availability of Jordan Rhodes, according to BBC Sport

The Blackburn Rovers striker signed a new contract in July of this year with his current club and the Blue and Whites paid £8 million to Huddersfield for his services.

With this in mind, expect a fairly large bid from Hull, who are in need of a striker themselves having sold Shane Long to Southampton for £12 million.

No forward signings

The Tigers have made five signings this summer all with varying success rates.

Robert Snodgrass signed for an undisclosed fee from Norwich City, however the midfielder has just recently been ruled out for six months due to dislocated knee cap.

Other midfielders that Steve Bruce brought in were Tottenham Hotspur’s Jake Livermore and Blackpool’s Tom Ince both for undisclosed fees. The two Englishmen are decent buys for Hull who should bolster their chances of staying in the Premier league for another season.

Hull’s boss paid a combined £4.9m for defenders Harry Maguire and Andrew Robertson who are also adequate additions.

There have been no strikers added to the squad and with Long’s exit whether Sone Aluko, Nikica Jelavic and Yannick Sagbo can be trusted to make the difference in front of goal is debatable to say the least.

Good Start

Hull made a brilliant start to their Premier League campaign coming away from Loftus Road with one-nil victory.

QPR could have got something out of the game when they were awarded a very dubious penalty decision late on in the game.

Alan McGregor saved Charlie Austin’s spot-kick and justice was thankfully served.

James Chester was awarded man of the match after scoring the winning goal and regularly denying Rangers.

Despite that victory it's clear Hull must prioritise signing a new striker before the transfer window slams shut, but their move for Rhodes still represents something of a risk considering his lack of Premier League experience.
