EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Hull City are on the verge of announcing the signing of Matt Ingram as they put the finishing touches to his transfer from Queens Park Rangers, Football Insider understands.
A deal has been agreed between the two clubs for the goalkeeper to move from London to east Yorkshire.
A Hull source has told Football Insider that Ingram has completed a medical at the club, agreed the terms of a contract and will soon be unveiled as a new recruit.
Recently-appointed manager Grant McCann has given the green light for the Tigers to complete the signing of Ingram, who has slipped down the pecking order at Loftus Road following the recent capture of Liam Kelly.
Ingram joined QPR from Wycombe Wanderers in January 2016 and had to bide his time as he waited for a run in the team.
He was installed as the number one following last year’s sale of Alex Smithies to Cardiff City but had a poor start to the campaign and was displaced by Joe Lumley.
New R’s boss Mark Warburton has sanctioned the sale of Ingram as the goalkeeping merry-go-round continues and Lumley will compete with Kelly for the number one jersey next season.
