Hull City transfer news: Tigers allow Brandon Fleming to join Shrewsbury Town as club push ahead with move for Brighton left-back James Furlong

HULL CITY left-back Brandon Fleming has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan for the rest of the season.

The homegrown product is down the pecking order at City following the signing of Ruben Vinagre, with the Championship club also hoping to bring in another left-back before the deadline in Brighton’s James Furlong.

The 21-year-old, who signed a new deal at Albion in the summer, is set to join the Tigers on a permanent deal, clearing the way for the departure of Fleming.
