Hull City’s excellent start on the pitch this season has been somewhat overshadowed by the state of the club off of it.

Now it appears that the off-field issues could see one of their more impressive players heading out of the club.

The Sun are reporting, in their print edition (21/08/16, pg 62), that Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez wants to leave the club – and that Championship side Aston Villa are keen on his signature.

Hull have not yet appointed a permanent manager and only have a handful of fully-fit first-team players.

The situation has seemingly gotten the better of Hernandez – who is now considering his future at the club.

Earlier this month the Uruguayan spoke to Radio station Sport 890 in his homeland, as relayed by Tenfield.com.

He made it clear he was unhappy with the current situation and that he’d be open to a move to Aston Villa.

It certainly seems that Hernandez may not be sticking around at Hull for long, unless some major changes are made at the club.

He scored against Swansea City yesterday and could still claim the opening goal against Leicester City on the first game of the season.

Aston Villa would be pleased to have him, but Hull must do everything they can to keep hold of him.
