European giants Liverpool are willing to allow youngster Tyler Morton to head out on loan this season and Hull City are one of numerous Championship clubs interested in signing the 20-year-old, according to reports.
This is Anfield are reporting that several clubs in England’s second-tier have enquired to the Reds about the possibility of taking Morton on loan as the player has now fully recovered from an injury problem which hampered his minutes towards the end of last season.
Morton spent the campaign at Blackburn Rovers and made 40 appearances under Jon Dahl Tomasson at Ewood Park as the Riversiders fought deficiently for the final playoff spot. However, the youngster sustained a foot injury in April which ended his season early.
Nevertheless, Liverpool are prepared to let Morton head back out for another loan spell to the Championship and Hull Live are claiming that Hull City are one of the teams who are keen to snap the midfielder up.
Liam Rosenior’s side are set to endure a busy end to the transfer window and are close to signing Jaden Philogene-Bidace on a permanent basis from Aston Villa as well as centre-forward Keinan Davis.
The deal for both players is set to come to a combined total of £6 million, although signing Morton would not cost anything apart from wages given that it’s a loan deal.
Hull City face Leicester City today at the King Power Stadium but will be hoping to complete a deal for Morton, Davis and Philogene-Bidace by the time Championship football returns after the international break in mid-September.
Hull City will need to stand out from the rest if they are to compete with several other Championship sides for Morton’s services on loan this season.
However, Liverpool may decide that Rosenior’s record of trusting young players from his time at Derby County and now Hull justifies sending the deep-lying midfielder to the MKM Stadium for the next nine months.
