Report: Konrad De La Fuente’s proposed loan move to Hull City falls through


Konrad De La Fuente was reportedly set for a new loan opportunity in England, but it now looks like the American winger’s frustration in Greece will continue.

De La Fuente’s proposed loan move to English Football League Championship side Hull City did not meet the deadline prior to the closure of the January Transfer Window, HullLive reported Tuesday. The Marseille attacker was currently on loan with Greek side Olympiakos, but was set to leave Greece and make the move to Hull City for the remainder of the season.

De La Fuente has only five appearances for Olympiakos since arriving in Greece last August.

The 21-year-old moved to Marseille from Barcelona in 2021, scoring one goal and adding three assists in 23 combined appearances. However, De La Fuente struggled to retain his role with the club following a season-ending injury last spring.

The former Barcelona academy player has found it tough to get back into the U.S. men’s national team picture following his move to Marseille. De La Fuente has earned three caps for the USMNT while also being a former USMNT Under-20 player.

Olympiakos has six league matches left in its schedule, in additional to a two-legged Greek Cup semifinal tie against AEK Athens.


  1. Soto, De La Fuente, Hoppe – all young guys with an allergy inoculated by Pulisic into today’s youths of the US…an allergy to MLS (by proof of most comment sections and UMNT twitter). Soto should know better. Meanwhile you have players like Jack Harrison, Miguel Almiron and many others excelling in Europe after coming through MLS to play. The scouts are here boys.

    Middlesborough B to Hibs?! Olympiakos bench to Hull City?!
    Second division Dutch league to Mid table Austrian league?!

    Come home guys, seriously….

    • Kinda his last hope at playing time. From the very little I know of him I’d be surprised if he’d go for it. This is a kid that got transfered to a historic club in France and immediately said in the press his goal is to get back to Barca. Then proceeds to have an issue with working hard in training. Now he hardly sees the pitch at Olympiakos. Unless he’s found his humility I would be surprised he would “stoop” to MLS level. Although maybe his hometown club of Inter Miami could lure him.

      • “Unless he’s found his humility I would be surprised he would “stoop” to MLS level. ”

        ??? The first time I saw him play I was wondering what all the fuss was about. I’ve been wondering ever since. He was never that good in the first place.

        He’s an example of an “SBI overhype due to club”.

        Had he stayed home he’d probably be just as “well regarded” but a bit lighter in his bank account.

        What he does show you is that Pulisic, Weston, Tyler Gio, Josh, etc. our reasonably established Euro USMNT players, for the most part, just might be the exception not the rule.

        Becoming a regular in a top league in Europe is really very hard for any nationality but we don’t know who those guys so we don’t notice the failure rate.

        There are so few Americans, comparatively, that we notice KDLF much more.
