Ryan Longman is expected to leave the MKM Stadium this summer. The Hull City forward is the subject of intense transfer speculation, with a number of English Football League clubs tracking the player.

Longman spent the 2023/24 season on loan with City's Championship rivals Millwall. He scored three goals and registered a further three assists in his 35 appearances across all competitions for the Lions. Longman was one of their standout performers following the appointment of Neil Harris as Millwall pulled clear of relegation trouble to secure a mid-table finish.

A Daily Mirror report claims the Lions are interested in signing Longman on a permanent basis but face strong competition for his signature. Birmingham City and Wrexham, two of League One's big-hitters with cash to spend, are also said to be among the clubs in the mix to land the winger, who has entered the final year of his Tigers contract.

When quizzed on Longman's situation last month, Harris told the South London Press “Longy was brilliant for me. He showed some excellent attributes to be a really, really positive attacking influence as a Millwall winger.

“I really enjoyed working with him. He’s a brilliant character. He is a player we have stayed in touch with and the door was firmly open for Longy to certainly work with me and the football club in the future.

“Sometimes in football, things can change quickly. Hull have changed their manager not long after the season finished and players then might be in plans or might be out of plans. There’s certainly been a continued relationship between Ryan and myself regarding what the future years might hold.”

Longman has been on the Tigers' books since 2021,
