Defender Jack Hobbs recalled by Hull City

Hull City recall centre-back Jack Hobbs from his loan spell at Nottingham Forest 10 days after the Reds claimed to have signed the defender on a permanent defender.

Hull City have recalled Jack Hobbs from his loan spell at Nottingham Forest following the injury to centre-back James Chester.

Chester has been ruled out for six weeks with a hamstring injury and Tigers boss Steve Bruce feels that Hobbs is needed at the KC Stadium for defensive cover.

The 25-year-old has impressed for promotion-chasing Forest in the Championship this season and the City Ground outfit were hoping to tie up a permanent move for the former Liverpool player.

Reds chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi announced last week that a deal had been agreed for them to sign Hobbs, whose Hull contract expires in the summer, for £1m in this transfer window.

However, their chances of landing him full-time appear to have been thwarted by this development. Wigan Athletic and Reading have also been credited with an interest in Hobbs's signature.
