Watford striker Isaac Success is being lined up for a loan move to Hull City, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Hull boss Leonid Slutsky is looking to add to his squad before the close of the transfer window and a new striker is among his top priorities after losing Abel Hernandez for several months with an Achilles injury.

Success has emerged on Hull’s radar with the Nigerian international currently down the pecking order at Vicarage Road.

The 21-year-old has not made Watford’s matchday squads for their opening two games of the season against Liverpool and Bournemouth.

Watford boss Marco Silva has revealed Success has not been involved so far this season because he has yet to adapt to his ideas.

Success joined Watford from Granda last summer and was the then’s club record signing before the arrival of Andre Gray from Burnley this summer.

The powerful forward started just two Premier League games last season with the rest of his 17 appearances coming as a substitute.

Success, who scored one goal last season, saw his debut campaign disrupted by injuries and he could be tempted to go out on loan and play if he is out of favour under Silva.
