Manchester United forward Nick Powell has completed a loan move Hull City until the end of the season. Powell, 21, has failed to break into Louis van Gaal’s first-team plans at Old Trafford and will be looking to regain his form by joining Hull City for the reminder of the 2015/16 season.
The 21-year-old forward has featured in only two competitive games this season, coming off the bench as a substitute in the defeats against Bournemouth and Wolfsburg.
Discussing his decision to join Hull City via the clubs website, Powell revealed personal reason were behind his loan move to Hull.
“Bits and bobs. Mainly, it was personal reasons,” he explained. He also explained he had been training the last couple of months, however United claimed four weeks ago he was carrying a calf strain.
“I haven’t played in a long time, I’ve been injured quite a lot, hopefully that’s past me and I’m striving to get more games and play football again. I’ve been training last couple of months so it’s time to get some games now.”
Hull are currently struggling to make an instant comeback to the Premier League and Powell has revealed how the Tigers boss Steve Bruce persuaded him to drop a division.
During the interview Powell added that he is excited to hook up with former United captain Bruce at Hull. “I talked to the gaffer, the ambitions are good, so I’m glad to be a part of that and get some games.”
“He just said to me I’ll play games, the lads are good, the atmosphere is good, pushing for promotion, it’s what I want to be, top of any league so it was a win-win.”
“Yeah, any time would have been good [to leave on loan], everybody needs games. I’m happy Steve’s come in and offered me that, so it’s a good move.”
