The Hull City manager is keen on acquiring the services of the Manchester United youngster for the remainder of the season as he looks to guide his team to safety
According to reports, the former Manchester United defender has already had a mild conversation with Louis van Gaal regarding the possibility of signing Powell on loan for the remainder of the season. The young Englishman was sent out on loan to Leicester City earlier this season but was called back this January after he was not given a fair amount of chances to prove his worth.
However, Van Gaal still sees the youngster as part of his plans in the future and wants him to gain as much Premier League experience as he can and would be willing to let Bruce have the player till the season ends as long as he gets enough playing time so as not to hinder his development.
Last season, Powell was on loan at Wigan Athletic and really put in consistently impressive displays and the Dutchman wants him to do exactly the same if the former Crew Alexandra youth is able to engineer a move to the Tigers by the end of the January transfer window.
