The Daily Mirror have claimed that Nick Powell could well be on the move again in news that has Manchester United fans looking up with interest from their pints here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The midfielder has of course spent the first half of the season on loan at Championship side Wigan and it is fair to say he impressed most of the punters here in the tavern.
Our landlord has had one of the busiest festive periods in recent memory, and despite that, he still seems to find time to fill us in on the latest gossip that the newspapers seem to contain. The latest snippet is that David Moyes is preparing to allow Powell to go out on loan once again, this time to Premier League side Hull, who could well do with that extra bit of talent in the middle of the park.
One of our punters who has a soft spot for United claims that given the form of Tom Huddlestone, Powell can only learn and improve from what he sees during the loan spell. It will also give him some much needed first team action in the top flight of English football, which would be no bad thing for the player or his parent club.
Will Bruce land Powell on loan? Let us know your thoughts below.
