According to the Mirror (h/t HITC), Hull City could sign Josh Bowler on loan this summer. New manager Grant McCann is considering a move for the Everton winger as he looks to build a strong squad for the forthcoming campaign.

Bowler has yet to make an appearance for the Toffees since joining from Queens Park Rangers in 2017 and may jump at the chance of first-team football next season.

The 20-year-old winger has racked up 35 games for the u23s, scoring and creating four goals. He turned out for Everton’s second-string side in the EFL Trophy on three occasions last season but hasn’t made the matchday squad in any senior competition yet.

Should he join Hull and impress in 2019/20, there’s every chance he could put himself in contention of a promotion from the Everton reserves. A scouting team should be keeping tabs on their players out on loan next season and relaying relevant information back to Marco Silva.

There’s no other information from the Mirror regarding Hull’s pursuit of Bowler, but McCann is said to be very keen on bringing the youngster to the KCOM. That may suggest he stands a good chance of getting games despite his relative inexperience.
