Future Transfer Questions Raised For Hull City

Hull City currently have a long list of loan players that they hope to keep if their ambitions of promotion to the Premier League comes to fruition.

Manager Liam Rosenior was speaking to Hull Live about the importance of preparing a transfer plan if the side were to gain promotion to the Premier League this year.

Whichever team wins the play-offs only has a few months to prepare a squad to play in the top division, a hard task if a team comes in unprepared, something which would have dire consequences. Sheffield United lost a myriad of key players last summer and as a result, currently sit bottom of the league.

However the Hull man has stated that their is a plan in place, favouring to build around a core group of players to keep team spirit rather than an entire squad overhaul like Nottingham Forest.

“I think that a lot of clubs think they have to go completely different when they get promoted to the Premier League. That they have to go to a different market. I don’t agree

“From my experiences as a player, here, and especially at Brighton as well when we were promoted, we kept the core group. We kept the core group because you are used to winning games. I watched Chelsea (versus) Leeds (In the FA Cup), it was a really good game and I felt Leeds were really, really good.

“You need to have a core group that have the same values and the same culture that you’ve built and I think that’s enough, especially in the first season, but we got a lot of work to do before we cross that bridge. I’m just focused on the next game to be fair.

“I think that’s why again, you can’t change and rip up all your plans. I look at what Luton have done. I think they’re they’re doing a fantastic job. Rob’s doing a great job there.

The Yorkshire outfit have had a mixed run of games recently, draws with Leicester City, Preston North End and West Brom all being seen as decent results, they’ll hope to pick up three points in their upcoming game against Stoke City to boost their promotion chances. However the run-in to the end of the season is by no means easy and they’ve got some tough games against Leeds United, Coventry City and Middlesborough.

If results go the right way, and Hull can beat play-off rivals and changing draws into wins, then they can certainly look with hope to clinching the final play-off spot. If Liam Delap’s injury comes along well during the international break then their chances would increase even further. The talisman’s return would be widely welcomed by the fans, with the lack of an out-and-out striker the last few games being highlighted by the black and amber fans.

In the event the Tigers do get promoted this year, it’s likely Rosenior will look towards loan players such as Tyler Morton and Fabio Carvalho to bring them into the club permanently to build an important core of the squad. The club would also be confident in that case of keeping high value assets like Jacob Greaves and Jaden Philogene who bring serious quality to the starting lineup.

It’s easy to imagine a scaled up transfer plan that we saw at the beginning of this season. Intelligent investment in a mix of domestic and foreign players while seeing if players with high potential like Regan Slater and Abdush Omur can step up to the quality of the top division. It’ll be a exciting last few weeks in the play-off race, but Hull obviously have a plan for the future.
