HULL boss Liam Rosenior wants to sign old boy Malcolm Ebiowei on loan from Crystal Palace.
Rosenior worked with the 19-year-old winger at Derby County and would like to take him for the second half of the season.
Palace are prepared to let Ebiowei go for the game time.
But they may also want to sign an extra wideman on loan to make up for the loss.
Ebiowei joined Crystal Palace in the summer after leaving the Rams.
He forced his way into the first team at Pride Park during the second half of the campaign.
Ebiowei has came off the bench twice in the Premier League this season.
He has also been a sub twice in the Carabao Cup, and saw his penalty saved in Wednesday’s shootout defeat to Newcastle.
SunSport exclusively revealed in the summer that Ebiowei snubbed Manchester United in favour of signing for Palace.
And now new Hull boss Rosenior is targeting the teenager to help fire his side up the Championship.

Rosenior took over the Tigers earlier this month after Shota Arveladze was sacked in September.
His side are currently 20th in the Championship following today’s home defeat to Reading.
