Hull City Closing in on Loan Deal For Premier League Forward

Hull City have agreed a deal with Premier League side Burnley to bring in Anass Zaroury on loan for the remainder of the season, as reported by Hull Live.

Zaroury has reportedly been a long-term transfer target for Hull, and the club have maintained interest in the winger since the January transfer window opened.

The Belgian winger has been a fringe player at Turf Moor this season, making just six appearances for the Clarets, which led to the initial interest from the Tigers.

However, Liam Rosenior’s side faced competition for Zaroury’s signature, with Sacha Tavolieri reporting that French side Lille were interested in bringing in the 23-year-old on deadline day. But Hull and Burnley now look poised to finalise a loan deal for Zaroury to move to the MKM Stadium.

Zaroury joined Burnley from Belgian side RSC Charleroi in 2022 and was integral to the Clarets Championship promotion campaign last season. In 34 league appearances last season, the Moroccan winger made six assists and scored six goals.

Rosenior’s Hull side have sought attacking reinforcements in the January window to strengthen their play-off push in the second half of the campaign. The 23-year-old would be the Tigers’ fifth winter signing, with other forward players Bill Sharp, Noah Ohio and Fábio Carvalho also joining in January.

Hull are currently seventh in the Championship table and two points off the top six. Just two wins in six has held back the Tigers’ play-off chances in recent weeks.

Zaroury has already proven his potential at Championship level and Rosenior will have a reliable and productive winger available if Hull can get this signing over the line. The young winger will also be eager to prove himself after falling out of favour under Vincent Kompany at Burnley.

The Tigers have had a stellar transfer window so far, especially with securing the highly-rated Carvalho too. These high-profile new signings come at a vital time for the Tigers, who desperately need a lift to reinvigorate their promotion challenge.
