Hull City could revive their interest in West Bromwich Albion defender James Chester, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Hull need defensive cover amid fears that Moses Odubajo could be out of competitive action until the early months of 2017.

According to The Daily Mail, Bordeaux centre-back Ludovic Sane is a target for Hull, but Chester is also claimed to be an option.

Chester created four chances in 13 Premier League appearances for West Brom during the 2015-16 season.
