Rob Hulse Latest Latics Target

Rob Hulse Latest Latics Target

According to The Sunday People, Chris Hutchings is to offer Sheffield United £2.5 million for striker Rob Hulse.

28 year old Hulse started his career at his home town club Crewe where he made his name as a classy forward, making 110 appearances for the Alex scoring 51 goals; he was chased by many clubs at the time including the Latics

Hulse joined West Brom for £1 million, whilst there Hulse played 35 games scoring 13 goals.

When the Baggies got promoted to the Premiership Hulse found he was out of favour.

He joined Leeds United in 2004, initially on loan until a £1.1 million fee was agreed between the clubs.

He made 41 appearances for the Yorkshire men scoring 18 times.

Rob Hulse joined Sheffield United in July 2006 for a fee of £2.1 million and went on to make 17 appearances for the Blades scoring 8 times including the goal in the game at the JJB which saw Sheff Utd win one nil.

Hulse suffered a double fracture of his left leg following a challenge with Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech on March 17th this year.

It is expected that Hulse will be fit to start pre-season training in readiness for the 2007-08 season.

Hulse as been a bit injury prone over his career and I dont think he is a qualioty premiership striker, with him not having fully recovered from a broken leg, double fracture at that, I cant see Hutchings following this one through

if he got over his injuries then he would be great but its the injuries that have let him down signing him would be a massive gamble
