HITC Sport understands Hull City have taken New Zealand international Stefan Marinovic on trial.

Hull City are considering a move for New Zealand goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic after inviting the player on trial, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Marinovic, who is the No.1 goalkeeper for New Zealand, is currently a free agent after leaving Vancouver Whitecaps at the end of this season’s Major League Soccer campaign.

The 27-year-old joined Vancouver Whitecaps in the summer of 2017 from German side Unterhaching after spending eight years in the German 3. Liga and Regionalliga leagues.

The athletic goalkeeper made 29 appearances for Vancouver Whitecaps and impressed during his spell at the club.

Marinovic has more than 20 senior appearances for New Zealand, starting all three matches at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and each of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers as the Kiwis won the Oceania region before losing to Peru in their inter-confederation playoff.

Hull are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements to provide cover and competition to David Marshall and George Long as Tigers boss Nigel Adkins looks to strengthen his squad for the second half of the season.

Adkins and his coaching staff will cast an eye over Marinovic at close quarters in training this week before deciding whether or not to offer the New Zealand man a chance to move to the Championship.
