Hull City have moved for Manchester United striker Joshua King.

Hull boss Nick Barmby is trying to land King after he returned from his stint at Borussia Monchengladbach.

"We have got a chance and if we can do it, then great," Barmby told the Hull Daily Mail. "We've got a chance for other players as well so have cover, but I've seen Josh King play quite a few times. I really like him. He's a very good player who's quick, got a good stature and can play in a number of positions. <> "He's an exciting player but we'll have to wait and see if we can get something done."
