Hull City Close In On This Fellow Championship Hitman: The Perfect Fit For Slutsky’s System?

Hull City have started their campaign this season in the Championship in a mixed way, having won two, lost two and drawn one of their five matches so far. The Tigers have scored a dozen goals so far in the competition and are looking to sharpen their attacking edge by bringing in a new midfielder in the form of Jackson Irvine, currently playing for fellow Championship side Burton Albion.

The 24-year-old is one of the most highly regarded players in the current scenario and has attracted attention from a number of clubs in the Championship, with Hull City looking in the strongest position to bag him for the new season.

The Tigers are looking to make it a successful stint in the Championship after being relegated from the top flight at the end of the last term and the arrival of a player like Irvine can act as a big boost for them.

The Australian international has played a major role in the attack for the Brewers since his arrival at the club last summer. He has been featuring regularly in the lineup, making a big impact in the side with 11 goals so far in 49 appearances. However, it seems that the player is on the verge of parting ways with the club within the next few days, with a move to the Tigers looking imminent.

The Australian striker is known for his darting runs into the heart of the opposition defence, with his swift footwork making it difficult for the defenders to stop him from getting the ball past the keeper.

He is well equipped with the ability to score brilliant goals from set piece situations. He is also known for his physical presence and can cause trouble for the opposition defenders by getting the better of them constantly in the air.

The above traits, which are his main strengths, have reflected in his playing style throughout the last season and have helped the Australian International make a name for himself as a player who can create and score goals constantly.

The man in charge at the KCOM Stadium, Leonid Slutsky, has never been a big fan of water-bound defending tactics and is looking to add to his firepower for the new season. A player like Jackson Irvine will definitely bring the much-needed flair to his side and might also help in making the Tigers head back to the top flight once again the next season.
