Hull City: Paul McShane Heads Back to Sunderland

Brian RhodesSenior Analyst IJanuary 15, 2009

It was announced after Hull City's third round victory over Newcastle United that Paul McShane had been recalled by his parent club Sunderland. Ricky Sbragia had hinted earlier in the transfer window that he may recall the utility defender if he couldn't fill the position during the transfer window.

McShane who joined the Tigers on August 10th had been ever present in the Hull City starting line up and scored the opener in the draw with League leaders Liverpool at Anfield.

Phil Brown stated that McShane would be leaving the club due to a recall clause in the loan contract. However, Brown also hinted that Sunderland's captain Dean Whitehead was one of his transfer targets in this window. Whitehead's signing may be a priority as influential midfielder George Boateng was stretcherd off during the match against Newcastle.
