Midfielder leaves on loan.

Sunderland’s David Meyler has joined Npower Championship side Hull City on loan until January 1.

The 23-year-old will link up with former manager Steve Bruce as well as winger Ahmed Elmohamady, who is also on loan with the Tigers.

Meyler, a Republic of Ireland international, has made five appearances for the Black Cats in all competitions this season, with four of those coming from the bench.

The midfielder has been with Sunderland since joining from Cork City in 2008 and has made 31 appearances for the Black Cats.

Hull currently sit fourth in the Championship and face an away trip to Cardiff this weekend.
