Hull City are preparing for a fourth successive season of Championship football.

The off-season will provide several changes in East Yorkshire, as the search for Liam Rosenior’s successor continues.

This has meant for a slow transfer rumour mill as far as the Tigers are concerned, with Acun Ilicali’s main focus turning to who will replace the 39-year-old who was dismissed at the beginning of the month after guiding the club to a 7th place finish – their best standing since being relegated from the Premier League.

However, that could all be about to change, as reports have once again linked City with a long-term target.

That’s because, according to a report from, The Tigers have opened talks with right-back Bryan Reynolds, who has been the subject of previous interest by the Championship side since Ilicali took over the club back in January 2022.mkm stadium

The latest report states that the 22-year-old has impressed many suitors during his time at KVC Westerlo, having signed for the Belgian Pro League outfit on a permanent deal last summer for a reported €3.5m fee, after spending the previous season on loan at the club from Italian giants, AS Roma.

It goes on to claim that an array of clubs from across the continent, specifically in England, France and Turkey have been monitoring the defender’s development, before saying that the Tigers have opened talks with Reynolds, alongside an unnamed Ligue 1 outfit.

KVC Westerlo, like Hull, are owned by a Turkish business person in the form of Oktay Ercan, which could lead to more interest from big clubs in the Turkish Süper Lig.

Only this time last year were links between the two parties also surfacing, with Hull said to have been interested in Reynolds’ availability whilst still on the books of AS Roma alongside Watford and Swansea.

In an interview with Belgian news outlet, VoetbalNieuws, Reynolds was pressed on the possibility of following in Lyle Foster’s footsteps in making a move to England, having also been monitored by West Ham United.

He said: “We’ll see about the future. I’m not concerned with all that right now. The only thing that matters is Westerlo. If the team performs well and I play well, the rest will take care of itself.”
