Hull City’s January transfer market consisted of a fair few loans. People such as Elabdellaoui, Niasse, N’Diaye, Ranocchia and Markovic.
The latter of them all became a personal fan favourite of mine. The Serbian winger brought a mixed response amongst the city fans upon his arrival. Since coming on as a substitute in the EFL cup win over Man United, he continued to improve in a black and amber shirt.
I saw Markovic with a real swagger, he terrified opposing defenders with spectacular speed, flair and agility. The 23-year-old loanee played 12 games for the tigers and scored 2 goals. His first goal was an equaliser when fellow strugglers Middlesbrough came to town. The second was when we got a glimmer of hope over our 2-0 home win over Watford, who now supposedly have interest in him. A lot of Hull fans spent a lot of time questioning his move to Yorkshire, and are still scratching their heads whether they rated him or not. I think it’s a split opinion amongst the fans. I believe he could be a great addition to the Championship, however, we simply will not have the money.

HARRY! HARRY! HARRY! How did the lad not get an England call up in a tigers shirt? The answer is in the question. “Tigers shirt”. Now he’s moved to Leicester he will surely get a call up, he has to right?
The huge unit joined Hull from Sheffield United in July 2012 for a fee of £2.5 million. A bargain for what we got in 3 years. The centre-back spent a loan spell at Wigan when he found himself struggling to get into the Hull squad. When Hull played at Loftus Road v QPR, Harry started his Hull career with a bang! A fond memory of him for a lot of fans was when he took out 2 QPR players with one crunching tackle.
Maguire got 54 appearances at Hull, with 2 goals coming in his last season. A first goal in a 2-1 EFL cup away win over Bristol City, and a first Premier League goal when he sealed a 4-2 victory over Middlesbrough.
We will certainly miss the big guy. The way he’ll just shrug off an opponent to let the ball roll out, the way Theo Walcott tried to square up against him, and he laughed. His hard tackles and strength in the air. Harry was greatly unappreciated by supporters of other teams, but if they had someone in their team like him, they would see that £12 million (plus add ons) actually isn’t much to compensate for what we are losing.
