It’s been a worryingly quiet summer up to now for Hull City. They’ve lost Steve Bruce and are yet to replace him, and have left all of their transfer business until the very last minute – something which could prove incredibly costly as they look to survive on their immediate return to the Premier League.
And while many expected this to be the day of several marquee arrivals at the KCOM Stadium, the unfortunate truth is that nothing really has happened – yet.
Manchester United Under-21 captain James Weir is reportedly having a medical as we speak, and the club did add Will Keane, David Marshall and Ryan Mason to their ranks yesterday – but having spent just over £12m in total this summer, there’s a growing concern that Hull could soon find themselves looking up at the other 19 clubs in the top-flight.
There have been a whole host of names linked with a move to the KCOM Stadium in recent weeks – but the managerless club have seen all their targets move elsewhere – most recently Hal Robson-Kanu to Premier League rivals West Brom.
And with just four hours to go until the transfer window slams shut until January, caretaker boss Mike Phelan is facing a real race against time to bring in some more faces.
However, should a few more faces come in before 11pm, the 12/1 on Hull to sign the most players today looks like great value.
