The January transfer window give an opportunity to not only the top clubs in England but also gives the lower tier clubs a chance to strengthen their squad and weed out any weaknesses that the team has been carrying since the start of the season.
And recent reports have suggested that Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford might be heading out of the Stamford Bridge on a loan move.
Hull city who were relegated last season are looking for a quick re-entry into the top flight next season and have identified Bamford as the man to help them achieve their targets at the end of the season.
The 22 year old has not been able to break through into the first team at Chelsea since making the move from Nottingham Forrest and has spent 3 different spells on loans away from the club.
It is now understood that Guud Hiddink is willing to let the forward on a loan stint and The Mirror has now reported that Hull City want to take him on loan for the rest of the season.
The Chelsea forward has spent the first half of the season at Crystal Palace but has returned to the London franchise after failing to get enough game time under Alan Pardew.
Though Hull City are well placed for an immediate return to the Premier League, manager Steve Bruce is keen on strengthening his squad and has Bamford at the top of his wish list to partner Abel Hernandez up top for the remainder of the season.
Patrick Bamford fits the bill perfectly for the Hull City side as he is an experienced player in the Championship and has already taken teams to promotion in his career.
However, Hull City will have to fend off competition from Swansea City and Norwich City, two clubs who are also interested in a loan move for the 22 year old.
