BBC Humberside are reporting that Rafa Benitez is interested in Hull City’s 26 year-old midfielder Sam Clucas who plays on the left.
Sam has mainly played in the lower leagues in his career so far and played once for his home town club Lincoln City back in 2010.
Sam Clucas – Hull City midfielder
He joined Hull City from Chesterfield in July of 2015 on a three year deal for around £1.3M and since then he has played 74 times for the Tigers with 6 goals and has played 20 times in the Premier League this season
The news is via a tweet from BBC Humberside’s Mike White which was posted in Chronicle Live this morning:

Sam can play on the left wing, left wing-back or at left back so he seems quite versatile.
In his career Sam has played for Lincoln, Hereford United, Mansfield Town, Chesterfield and now Hull City and it’s only this season he has played in the Premier League.
Last year he was given a contract extension at Hull which runs through the end of June, 2019.
In his career he has played 235 times with 40 goals and if this news is accurate then Rafa Benitez must see something in the lad that he can develop at Newcastle.
