Hull City Launch Third Bid For 21 Y/O Defensive Ace: Is He Worth The Ruckus?

Hull City’s resurgence from relegation last season has faded away into bliss this season. Their campaign has been disappointing this time around and the club is struggling in the 21st spot of the EFL Championship. Multiple managers have stepped down from their posts in the last couple of years and the fans have had to endure a tough few years.

Just 5 wins from 28 games have left the Tigers vulnerable to another relegation threat. The club’s defensive record has been nothing to boast about either with Hull conceding 45 goals in their 28 games so far. The defence is marshalled by the duo of Michael Dawson and Michael Hector. They have formed a shaky defensive axis and Hull might need to reconsider their backline soon.

Things can get even more serious as Michael Dawson is already 34 years old and unlikely to improve over the years. The ageing centre-back is at the twilight of his career and will soon need to be replaced. A few quality additions to the current squad might be exactly what the Tigers need right now to jumpstart their second half of the season.

Dawson’s age makes it crucial for Hull City to sign a new defender now who can settle into the team by the time Dawson hangs up his boots. It is in coordination with such circumstances that Hull City are reportedly ready to consider a move for Aberdeen’s Scott McKenna.

The 21-year-old centre back is highly rated in the Scottish Premiership and has attracted eyes of a few suitors. He has played 17 games for Aberdeen this season and is one of their defensive mainstays. Although his natural position is at centre-back, he is also adept and fast enough to fill in as a left-back should his team need him to.

Hull City have reportedly made two bids for the player already and have seen both of them knocked back by the Dons. Nigel Adkins consider the player to be a top priority target before the transfer window slams shut next week and was reportedly present at Ibrox to watch the defender in action.

However, Dons boss Derke McInnes has said that the defender will not be allowed to leave and any club who thinks otherwise would be “wasting their time”.

The Tigers are, however, not ready to accept defeat and Adkins is reportedly preparing a third offer for the defender.
