Hull City are lining up a loan move for Crystal Palace winger Sullay Kaikai, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Kaikai is currently down the pecking order in Roy Hodgson's first-team plans and is yet to feature in Palace's opening two games of the new Premier League season.

A number of clubs have expressed an interest in taking Kaikai on loan and Palace are weighing up allowing him to go out on loan so that he can get regular first-team action under his belt.

Hull are leading the race for Kaikai as Tigers boss Nigel Adkins is determined to add to his side's attacking options, having seen his team fail to win any of their opening three Championship games and score only two goals in those outings.

Skilful attacker Kaikai has come through the ranks at Palace and he is highly-regarded at Selhurst Park after scoring on his first-team debut against Newcastle in 2014.

Kaikai has enjoyed loan spells at Charlton, Brentford and Shrewsbury over the last two seasons after previous spells at Crawley and Cambridge and Palace feel he would be best served by going out on loan again to continue his development.
