Evans joins Hull City on loan

Versatile young Red Corry Evans will spend the rest of the season on loan at Hull City.

Evans, 20, can play in either defence or midfield and turned out for United in Thursday night's Reserves game against Bolton Wanderers. But on Friday he joined his new team-mates in Hull and is available for selection when the Tigers host Barnsley on Saturday 15 January.

The Northern Ireland international (he's already played for his country despite not featuring for United's first-team) will be hoping this loan is more successful than the one-month stint he enjoyed at Carlisle United earlier this term. Evans picked up a hamstring injury during his spell at Brunton Park and only managed one appearance.

Evans joins fellow United loanee Cameron Stewart and former Red James Chester at Hull City. Chester, a central defender, made a permanent move to the Tigers earlier this week, while Stewart has been at the KC Stadium since November.
