Report: Toral set for Hull City loan move


Jon Toral is on the verge of joining Hull City on a season-long loan, according to ESPN.

The move to the KCOM Stadium would be the Spanglish midfielder’s fifth move in three years following stints at Brentford, Birmingham City, Granada and Rangers.

Toral, who signed from Barcelona alongside Hector Bellerin in 2014, penned a new contract in January between swapping Spain for Scotland.

It’s believed the extension was offered by Arsene Wenger with a view to protecting Arsenal’s investment, however, at 22-years-old time is running out for the midfielder to make an impact at the Emirates.

He wasn’t included in the Gunners first team pre-season touring party, seemingly falling behind the likes of Reiss Nelson and Jo Willock in the pecking order.

Toral will no doubt be hoping to make the same impact in the Championship as he did while on Birmingham’s books in 2015/16. While at St Andrew’s he was thrice crowned at the club’s end of year awards, picking up the Supporters’ Player of the Season, Goal of the Season and Players’ Player of the Year gongs.
