Slutsky is now looking to strengthen his midfield options with Sam Clucas set to depart for Swansea imminently, and Bannan is a man who could fill that void.

Toral and Success to join Hull City on loan
Hull City are eyeing two more loan deals before the end of the transfer window, with Watford’s Isaac Success and Arsenal’s Jon Toral being targeted.
22-year old Toral, who has spent time on loan at Birmingham, Brentford , Granada and Rangers in recent seasons, has failed to break into Arsene Wenger’s squad, and is keen to be sent out on loan once more this year.
Yet to make his professional Arsenal debut, Toral plays as an attacking midfielder, a position City really seem to lack at the moment, and even more so with the departure of Sam Clucas.
Meanwhile, Isaac Success, who only joined Watford last season for around £12.5 million from Granada, could also be heading out on loan to join the Tigers. Bagging just one goal in 17 appearances last season, Marco Silva is keen for the 21-year old to get game time this season, and he could find that in East Yorkshire with City now without long-term absentee Abel Hernandez.
