Eventually awarded an assist rather than a goal for his and Diomandé’s ‘double overhead/scissor kick’ against Leicester City at the weekend, Abel Hernandez might not end the transfer window as a Hull player.
Considering the club only have 14 fit players as of Monday morning, the last thing they want is for another player to leave, but according to the Uruguayan striker, Hull’s desperate situation has caused him to have a rethink about his future.
The 26-year-old gave a wide-ranging interview to Ovacion Digital in his home country, and when asked whether or not he would be a Hull player by the 1st of September, the player’s answer will do anything but reassure already worried fans.
He said: “The truth is I don’t know where I’ll end up playing this season. I’m a bit concerned about what’s going here in Hull, that we still don’t have a manager and we don’t have a big squad, we have many injuries and many youngsters. While Mike Phelan is currently here, we don’t know if he will stay.”
The player, who scored 20 goals in 39 Championship appearances last season, has attracted interest from a couple of big clubs in England with his form: Newcastle and Aston Villa.
Even though the pair currently ply their trade in the second tier, Hernandez described them as ‘two clubs who have interesting project and are working well’.
With two offers already on the table, and West Brom apparently also enquiring about his availability, the former Palermo star has a decision to make, with Ovacion Digital speculating this week could be key for Hernandez.
We’re not sure Aston Villa are currently ‘working well’, but anything is better than a team with only three available subs, right?
