Aaron McLean: May have to leave Hull City on loan in order to get games

It has been a season of frustration for the Tigers frontman so far, with a knee ligament strain having kept him out of action for six weeks.

He returned to the Hull fold to make his Premier League bow in a 1-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, before being involved again in a Capital One Cup clash with the same opponents.

McLean was, however, left out of the matchday squad for Saturday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

He returned to the goal trail in a reserve run-out in midweek, but faces competition for striking berths from Yannick Sagbo, Danny Graham and Nick Proschwitz.

At 30 years of age, McLean is not prepared to live life in the shadows and would be willing to head out of the KC Stadium on another short-term deal - similar to the one which took him to Ipswich Town last season - in order to get regular games.

He told the Hull Daily Mail: "If the club wanted to loan me out, then it would be something I would consider.

"But first I need to work hard for myself and be in the best condition. I'll have a look in the next few weeks and I'll speak to the management and find out if that is something they are looking at.

"First and foremost I want to get into the first team squad and play Premier League football. That's always been my goal and hasn't changed. All I can do is work hard in any game where I'm given an opportunity.

"I'm a Hull City player and all I want to do is force myself into the first team squad."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
