Grimsby Town have taken Hull City defender Adam Curry on trial with a view to a deal at Blundell Park, as confirmed by journalist Mike White.
Curry joined the Tigers in 2015 from South Shields and moved into their Under 23 squad, making his first team debut this season. He appeared in their League Cup win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in August, as well as playing in the second round as Hull lost to Derby County at the KCOM .
He has also had several non league loan spells, notably with Boston United, Spennymoor Town and most recently Alfreton Town.
He’s due to face Port Vale this afternoon in a development fixture although there’s no official confirmation of whether the intended deal is a loan switch or a permanent one.
Curry is reported to be highly-rated by the Tigers but has found his chances limited since their cup elimination. He’ll be hoping to impress and as a result, get some senior minutes under his belt imminently, whether that is at Hull or in League Two.
There’s a trend towards future loan players having trials now and if Curry is as highly rated as some say, this is sure to be a loan deal in the offing.
The two clubs are geographically close, separated only by the Humber Estuary, so it would be easy for the Hull City team to keep an eye on him whilst out on loan.
