Hull City are keen on signing Olympiacos defender Omar Elabdellaoui, reports Foot Mercato.

The Manchester City youth product could be leaving Greece, with several English clubs interested in him, and Hull City could be his next destination.

The 25 year old Norwegian international left Manchester City for German club Eintracht Braunschweig in 2013, and helped them win promotion to the Bundesliga.

However, only a year later he signed for Olympiakos, and now finds himself on the bench on most match days. Elabdellaoui has managed just over 300 minutes of football this season, and has another 18 months left on his contract at Olympiakos.

A permanent move could be ideal for all parties, but Hull may want to test the player out with a loan move first, and then decide on a permanent transfer in the summer.

Hull City are lying at the bottom of the Premier League standings, and probably need to make better signings to have any chance of avoiding relegation at the end of the season.

The squad needs both depth and quality adding to it and Marco Silva will surely wish to recruit. Signing Elabdellaoui would be a low cost move, which looks to be the way Hull are going.
