Robbie Brady believes Joshua King would be a great signing for Hull City after Nick Barmby expressed an interest in taking the Manchester United starlet on loan.
Brady, who extended his loan deal with the Tigers for the rest of the season from Manchester United last week, has urged the Norway Under-21 international to join him.
King went out on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach for the first half of the campaign, but hardly figured and now looks set to be farmed out again to gain first-team experience.
And Brady believes his fellow United starlet would add another dimension to Barmby's attack with his searing pace.
"I joined United at the same time as him and he would be a great asset for us," he told the Hull Daily Mail.
"He's got bags and bags of pace and is as strong as an ox. He's probably one of, if not the quickest, player I've played with at United.
"He's got to be one of the quickest at United full stop; he's certainly in the top two or three."
Brady signed a new deal with Manchester United which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2014.
He has since been allowed by Sir Alex Ferguson to head back to the KC Stadium for another stint on loan, as his previous one expired last month.
It is a decision he thoroughly agrees with and he is enjoying working under new boss Barmby.
"I would have been silly to go anywhere else. I love all the lads and everyone's made me feel at home," he added.
"Nick's brilliant too. He's always giving me help and a bit of stick as well. I get along with him, he's a top bloke."
Meanwhile, Martin Pusic has left Hull City after his short-term contract with the club expired last week.
