League One high-flyers, Hull City, look to be making their way back to the Championship at the first time of asking this season and Mallik Wilks has been a huge reason as to why that may happen for them.

The forward has been impressive throughout the 2020/21 season and has been a key reason as to why the Tigers currently find themselves sitting at the top of England’s third-tier.

Wilks has managed to score 17 goals and register two assists for Hull City so far in league competition, although this form across the whole season has seen him hit a total of 20 goals so far. Punters would love to have these kinds of success levels and they can when they use the best online casino sites available to them when satisfying their gambling needs.

Whilst the Tigers will obviously be pleased with what the 22-year-old has been able to achieve this season, it will have also caused them a headache as the forward has started to attract some unwanted attention from some of the big boys in English football.

According to an exclusive report by Football League World, their sources have revealed that Premier League side, Burnley, are thought to be interested in Wilks and are thinking about making a move in the summer for him.

The Clarets are understood to be keeping a close eye on the striker for the time being and plan to continue watching him closely as the season progresses. If he continues to perform as well as he has been, Hull City will likely win promotion, but could face a real transfer battle in trying to keep him at the KCOM Stadium for the Championship season.

If Burnley like what they see between now and the end of the season, then they may look to open talks with the Tigers about a possible transfer fee; whether they will need to play at a real money casino to raise the funds needed, though, remains to be seen.

Wilks is no stranger to moving football clubs, as his short career has already been littered with a number of clubs.

Having started his football career with Leeds United – in which he made just one appearance in the FA Cup – he had loans at Accrington Stanley, Grimsby Town and Doncaster Rovers before Barnsley swooped in for him.

During his time at The Tykes, he was with current Hull City manager, Grant McCann, and was reunited with him in the winter of 2020 when he joined Hull City.
