Hull City have reportedly won the race to sign young Liverpool star Fabio Carvalho on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old made just 15 appearances for the Bundesliga side, and only three of them starts, totalling just 360 minutes of football.

Carvalho has been convinced of the Hull move after positive talks with head coach Liam Rosenior and Liverpool teammate Tyler Morton who is spending the season on loan at the MKM Stadium.

Southampton are still hopeful he may change his mind, but barring that he will be playing for the Tigers by the end of the week.

Hull are currently seventh in the Championship, a point off the play-offs, as they look to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2017.

Liverpool meanwhile will be looking to follow up their FA Cup win over Arsenal with victory in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Fulham on Wednesday night.
