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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
