Hull City want Danny Cowley to replace Adkins as manager

Another managerial departure, another report linking Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley to the vacant position, this time it is Hull City said to be interested in the highly rated former teacher as reported by the Mirror.

It looks like it will be a long summer for Lincoln City fans after reports linking their manager with West Bromwich Albion and Middlesborough have been supplemented with claims Hull City are now interested in Danny and his assistant brother Nicky taking over the reins at the KCOM Stadium.

The report claims Cowley is at the top of the Tigers wish list after watching him take their near neighbours from National League to League One in three seasons.

Hull City are confident of heading off ongoing interest from West Brom and tempting Cowley and his brother to ply their trade on the other side of the Humber Bridge according to the Mirror.

The Cowley’s have three years left on their contracts and it is reported that Lincoln would be entitled to £500,000 compensation if they left Sincil Bank

Adkins will surprisingly leave his position at the end of the month after rejecting a new deal because of ‘contractual issues’.

Our View

The Cowley’s are ambitious, but they are also very intelligent and I feel it is unlikely they would jump from the relative security of Sincil Bank to a club that lacks investment and has owners that would no doubt fail to match their ambition.

It also appears unlikely the Hull City board would pay the compensation clause in the sought after brothers contracts.

I feel this is a non-starter, Cowley has often said that he will choose his next chairman very carefully and I can’t see him being able to work successfully with Assem Allam.
