Nick Powell: Spell at Old Trafford comes to an end

Manchester United forgotten man Nick Powell has joined Championship side Hull City on loan until the end of season.

The 21-year-old returned from injury late last year and appeared as a substitute in United’s first-team games with Wolfsburg and Bournemouth.

Powell now links up with former United defender Steve Bruce’s Tigers, who signed Slovakia international goalkeeper Dusan Kuciak earlier on deadline day.

“Powell, who can play as either a striker or attacking midfielder, completed the temporary move on Monday evening and will join his new team-mates for training on Tuesday,” read a story on Hull’s official website.

“Powell, who will wear squad number 22, will hope to recapture the kind of form he showed during a loan spell with Wigan in the Championship in 2013-14, when he scored 12 times.”

Kuciak joins from Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who spent six months on loan at West Ham in 2005-06, has signed an 18-month deal at the KC Stadium.

Kuciak has 10 caps for his country and was part of their World Cup squad in 2010.
