Sky Sports pundit explains why Hull City should join Southampton and West Brom in transfer race for 24-year-old…

The January transfer window is approaching fast as teams prepare for the winter market.

David Prutton has given his verdict on Hull City potentially signing Ben Brereton Diaz in the January transfer window.

The Villarreal forward has been linked with a sensational return to English football just a few months after departing Blackburn Rovers.


The 24-year-old has struggled to make an impact with La Liga side Villarreal and may already be considering a return to the Championship in the winter market.


The likes of Crystal Palace, Burnley, Leicester City, Southampton and West Brom have been named as clubs interested in potentially signing the Chile international.

It remains to be seen whether Hull could join the race to sign the striker in January, with Liam Rosenior’s side looking to battle for promotion to the Premier League this season.

Would Ben Brereton Diaz be a good signing for Hull City?

Speaking on The 1904 Club podcast, Prutton outlined why Brereton Diaz would be a perfect fit for the Tigers.


While he is still sceptical that Brereton Diaz would be open to the move, he has claimed that it could be a great addition to the Hull squad.


“I like the Brereton-Diaz one,” said Prutton, via Hull Live.

“It’s gone very quickly – I won’t say sour because I don’t know the ins and outs of what his move over there has entailed, come the end of his time at Blackburn when everyone knew that he was going and Blackburn’s season meandered to a close, his effectiveness on that side had waned somewhat – potentially, that was human nature given he knew what was coming.


“The player that he can be, whether that’s playing out in the wider parts of the pitch or down the centre, would really fit with what City are doing.


“You’ve gone [abroad], it’s failed and you’ve gone back down sideways down to Hull City, and I mean that with the greatest of respect to both Blackburn and City.

“If it was a case of coming to play for Liam [Rosenior] for four months between now and the end of the season in January, it’s one of those where you kind of say it, and it feels out of left field but the more you think about it the more it really, really fits.

“We’re now making the decision on behalf of Ben to come and play for Hull City which I totally get is a bit of a leap.


“I could absolutely see him playing in that City side and having that bit more experience to impart to those around him.”

Where are Hull City in the Championship table?

Hull are currently eighth in the Championship table, sitting outside of the play-off places due to a worse goal difference than the teams above them.
