Mills joins Hull in loan deal

Danny Mills has joined Championship side Hull on loan for the next two months. Mills had stated recently that he was looking for regular football and must have been hopeful of a deal before the transfer window closed.

Mills featured as a substitute in the victory over Arsenal (curiously in midfield) but with the return to fitness of Hatem Trabelsi he has seen his chances of first-team action reduced even further.

With their slow start to the season, Hull will hoping for a short-term boost from the signing but I think it highly unlikely the move will be made permanent. I don't believe that Hull will have the necessary finances to the fund the move on a permanent basis unless Mills lowers his wage demands though, and it maybe more of a case of Mills being in the 'shop window' to force a permanent move in the January transfer window.

vote it up!

I thought that Mills did decently on the left side versus Arsenal especially given it isn't his natural position. Nonetheless, he most certainly hasn't been anywhere worth the wages he is being paid and I believe he will not be with City after the next transfer window.

Now we can't pick either Mills or Thatcher for some time. That has got to be a good thing surely. Anyone fancy Reyna too?
