Hull City & Crystal Palace: Worth looking at John Guidetti

John Guidetti

John Guidetti

John Guidetti hasn’t seen the light of day since he returned from his loan deal at Feyenoord in 2011/12, and with the recent additions of Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo at Manchester City, his career is in danger of stalling if he doesn’t start getting more first-team minutes.

Combine that with the obvious lack of firepower at Crystal Palace and Hull, and surely there’s a case for a loan offer being made?

From Manchester City’s perspective, loaning Guidetti out to another European league is only of a certain amount of value and if he’s to have a future in England, then he needs to start playing in England.

Hull have Yannick Sagbo and Danny Graham, Palace have Kevin Phillips, Dwight Gayle, and Marouane Chamakh – that’s just not enough firepower to stay in the league.

If you haven’t seen Guidetti before, YouTube has a very decent selection of compilation videos from his time in the Eredivisie, and not only will you notice the range of goals he’s capable of scoring, but he’s actually very well-suited to a more physical, English style of play.

If I was Steve Bruce or Ian Holloway, I’d have been on the phone to City already.

  1. Only two Premier League loan players are allowed.

  2. We only have 2 on loan don’t we? I thought we could have 3 from the same league. I’d definitely welcome him at Hull, although we have Aluko, Fryatt and Proschwitz beyond the 2 mentioned. The later 2 might not play that much but they could surprise people and I’d like to see them given some game time, especially Fryatt since he’s been our top scorer for several years.

  3. Hull City don’t have any loan places left, I’m not sure this article was very well researched…

  4. Ye are such prats. John Guidetti hasn’t been fit for 6 months, originally with a debilitating virus. He’s only just started light training and will be 2-3 months before he’s anywhere near fit.

  5. Who says they haven’t already been on the phone to City about Guidetti? He’s still trying to regain his fitness following that debilitating virus that numbed the right side of his body and nearly ended his career. He said himself, he doesn’t see himself playing for the reserves until at least mid October. Maybe a January loan would be on the cards if he isn’t getting the game time. He is a great prospect though and Pellegrini has shown he is quite happy to blood the youngsters during his stint in Malaga. Looking forward to see what he’s got.
