Rivals enter winger race

Rivals enter winger race

Hull have joined Swansea and Crystal Palace in the race to sign Greenock Morton winger Jai Quitongo in the January window.

The 19-year-old is catching the eye with some dazzling performances north of the border and the scouts are flocking to watch him in action.

Doncaster Rovers failed with a £100,000 bid in the summer, but Quitongo now has bigger fish to fry with the Premier League now starting to take notice.

Palace and Swansea scouts have made several checks on the youngster, and now reports claim the Tigers are also keeping tabs on his performances.

Quitongo is out of contract at the end of the season and although Morton are keen to tie him down to a new one, that looks highly unlikely with so much interest.

Clubs outside of Scotland will be able to talk to him in January and it would appear Hull, Palace and Swansea are forming an orderly queue, while there is also interest from Wigan, Preston and Brighton.
