Hull are poised to sign St Helens' out-of-favour winger Jamie Foster on loan. The goal-kicking three-quarter scored 330 points in 28 appearances in 2011 but lost his place when head coach Royce Simmons left the club in March.

Hull turned their attention to Foster, who turns 23 next week, after Ben Crooks become the latest player to join their lengthy injury list. "Saints can confirm they are in discussions with Hull FC over the potential loan of Jamie Foster," said a club spokesman.

The duration of the loan would initially be be for one month and Foster could make his debut in Monday's Hull derby at Craven Park.
