Hull City hopes to expand relationship between Liverpool and Man City with planned transfer targets


Hull City will continue to build their relationships with top Premier League clubs this summer as the Tigers look to be aggressive in the transfer market ahead of the new season.

City vice-chairman Tan Kesler said the club remains in talks with top clubs about signing the next group of loan players to follow in the footsteps of Liam Delap, Fabio Carvalho and Tyler Morton.

The ambitious Tigers exploited the loan market successfully under previous boss Liam Rosenior and will do so again when Tim Walter takes over, with up to ten new players needed to give City another chance of making the play-offs.

Rosenior's style of football has ticked many boxes at clubs such as Man City and Liverpool, bringing players of that calibre to the club. With Walter, the Tigers will play a similar style, albeit more aggressive and attacking. Kesler believes this will help attract some of the Premier League's most promising young talent.

“I don't see any reason because this is not about me, this is not about Liam. I have said it in my previous conversations, it is about the club,” Kesler told Hull Live when asked if Rosenior's departure would impact those relationships.

“The chairman's vision is that the level of our club at the moment is still suitable for all these loan players from top clubs because we will still play similar football. More on the attacking side, creating and generating more action. We are also not changing our style of play towards direct football.

“Our fans, who have watched Tim's (Walter's) style of play in Hamburg and Stuttgart, will realise that it is possession-based and has similarities to our style of play, just more aggressive. That's why we will recruit more players in that direction.”
