Championship boss admits interest in Brentford man

The latest Brentford transfer news on Sunday.

Hull City boss Shota Arveladze has admitted his interest in Brentford attacker Halil Dervisoglu.

The Tigers have been linked with a move for the forward over recent times having already signed his Turkey international teammates Ozan Tufan and Dogukan Sinik this summer.

Dervisoglu, 22, was left out of the Bees squad as they beat Manchester United 4-0.

New move?

Speaking after their win over Norwich City yesterday, Arveladze confirmed that he wanted to bring him in before the end of the window to BBC Humberside reporter David Burns (see below):

Hull beat the Canaries 2-1 yesterday courtesy of two goals from new striker Oscar Estupinan. They are unbeaten in their opening three games this term.

Dervisoglu situation

Brentford signed Dervisoglu back in 2020 after he caught the eye playing in Holland for Sparta Rotterdam.

However, he has struggled to make an impact with the London club.

He has made 11 appearances in all competitions but has managed to find the net just once.

The Bees made the decision to loan him out to FC Twente and Galatasaray over the past couple of years to enable him to get more game time under his belt.

A move to Hull now would do the same for him and he would get much more opportunities at the MKM Stadium.

Thomas Frank’s side have brought in Keane Lewis-Potter from the Tigers as well as Denmark international Mikkel Damsgaard in attacking areas which pushes Dervisoglu down the pecking order.

Other news

In other Brentford news, Frank has admitted it was wrong of their fans to boo Christian Eriksen.

He said, as per West London Sport:

“I understand fans and how they can react but personally, I think we as a club should show class, respect and integrity throughout every action we do. That’s what I try to do every single day.”
