Jamie Foster has barely featured for Saints this year

Hull are poised to sign St Helens' out-of-favour winger Jamie Foster on loan.

The goalkicking three-quarter scored 330 points in 28 appearances in 2011 but lost his place when head coach Royce Simmons left the club in March, since which time he has been restricted to reserve duty. 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 be for one month initially."

Foster could make his debut in Monday's Hull derby at Craven Park.
