Celtic academy graduate and Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall will have a medical at Hull on Monday, according to a report.
Sky Sports claim on their website that Cardiff and Hull have agreed a £3.5million fee for the 31-year-old, and the deal will be completed shortly.
The Premier League newcomers have been linked with Marshall for most of the summer and they now look to have got the deal over the line.
Marshall missed Cardiff’s 1-0 defeat against Reading on the weekend as the deal neared completion.
Marshall started his professional career with Celtic in 2002, having come through their youth set-up and under 20 side.
However, the shotstopper left Celtic in 2007 to join Norwich, having played just 14 times for the senior Hoops team, who had Artur Boruc as their number one at the time.
Prior to a permanent move to Norwich he spent a year on loan in East Anglia, and in total played 105 times for them before moving to Cardiff in 2009.
He has been a key player for the Welsh giants over the last seven years, and was one of their shining lights during the season they spent in the Premier League.
The 31-year-old is regarded as a senior player in the Welsh capital, and has played a total of 278 times, with 87 clean sheets in that time.
Hull are without their first choice keeper and fellow Scot Allan McGregor, who will remain sidelined by an injury until November.
