Some Hull City supporters have taken to Twitter to express their delight amid speculation the Tigers are in talks to sign Derby County’s Jack Marriott on a free transfer.

Marriott joined Derby from Peterborough United in 2018.

The striker netted ten goals in 19 starts in the 2018-19 campaign, helping Derby reach the playoff final with two goals against Leeds United in the semi-finals.

Marriott, however, has struggled for form, fitness, and game-time since.

The Hull Daily Mail claim Hull are in talks to sign him with a medical scheduled, prompting some Tigers supporters to express their delight on social media.

McCann and Marriott could reunite:

Hull boss Grant McCann knows all about Marriott from his days at Peterborough.

The former Ipswich Town striker certainly knows where the net is when given the chance. For whatever reason, it just hasn’t happened for him at Derby.

His contract situation is slightly confusing. The Rams agreed to extend his deal last December, but the EFL blocked the request amid a reported transfer embargo.

It has given Hull the opportunity to strike a potential bargain.

The Tigers will be looking to consolidate themselves in the Championship after winning League One last year, while Derby could be in another relegation scrap.

The Rams’ squad is down to just 14 senior players after their latest retained list. Fellow striker Martyn Waghorn may also leave with his contract coming to an end.
