Liverpool are set to recall Peter Gulacsi from his loan spell at Hull to ease their goalkeeping crisis, the npower Championship club have confirmed.
The Reds are short of cover after first-choice keeper Jose Reina and his deputy Alexander Doni were sent off in successive games.
Those suspensions have left third-choice Brad Jones, who came off the bench against Blackburn last night, as Kenny Dalglish’s only senior stopper ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Everton.
Dalglish is unable to move for an emergency loan signing and has turned to Hungarian Gulacsi, who is available for Wembley duty after not being selected for either of the Tigers’ two FA Cup ties this season.
The 21-year-old has made 15 Championship appearances for the East Yorkshire outfit, who have also made loan moves this season for Arsenal’s Vito Mannone and Sunderland’s Trevor Carson after Gulacsi failed to impress.
A statement on Hull’s official website read: “Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi is set to be recalled from his loan spell with the Tigers by parent club Liverpool. The Hungarian stopper will return to Anfield later today.”
