Everton's new signing Oumar Niasse is presented to the fans
According to the Daily Mail, Hull City have opened talks to sign Everton's Senegalese forward Oumar Niasse on loan for the season.
The Tigers have endured a miserable transfer window, as they've failed to land any new signings, and have seen manager Steve Bruce leave the club.
With the season underway and just two weeks until the transfer deadline, Hull need to move quickly in order to get new players in, with caretaker manager Mike Phelan needing more quality in his squad despite Saturday's 2-1 win over Leicester City.
Now, the Daily Mail report that Hull have opened talks with Everton over a loan deal for attacker Oumar Niasse, who has failed to make an impact in England.

Niasse, 26, joined Everton from Lokomotiv Moscow back on deadline day in February, and arrived with high hopes having hit 19 goals in 42 games for the Russian side.
However, Niasse made just five Premier League appearances and looked woefully unfit during his time at Goodison Park, and failed to score for the Toffees as his dream move to the Premier League quickly became a nightmare.
It's now claimed that Niasse – who proved to be the final signing of former manager Roberto Martinez – has been told he has no future under new Toffees boss Ronald Koeman, and is in talks with Hull over a loan move to the KCOM Stadium.
The report adds that Niasse was actually offered to Crystal Palace in a part-exchange deal for new signing Yannick Bolasie, but with that move to Selhurst Park seemingly dead, Niasse could instead stay in the Premier League by joining Hull.
Do you think Niasse should be given another chance at Everton?
