Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are reportedly showing interest in Hull City's Mallik Wilks, amid speculation over the future of the recently-promoted striker.

Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Hull City forward Mallik Wilks.

Wilks scored 19 goals and provided eight assists in the league for Hull this season, as Grant McCann's side secured promotion to the Championship after finishing top of League One, two points clear of second-placed Peterborough.

The 22-year-old's performances this season could earn him a place in England's top division, with multiple Premier League clubs tipped to enquire about his signature this summer.

Football Insider reports that Newcastle and Palace are the two main top-flight clubs interested in Mallik, who has one year remaining on his current contract in the North-East with an option to extend by 12 months.

Crystal Palace confirmed this week that Roy Hodgson will leave Selhurst Park this summer, and so Mallik will have to attract the attention of a new manager if he was to gain a move to South London.

Mallik has played at all levels in the English Football League, and a move to the Premier League would complete his set of playing in the top-four divisions in England.
