Medical underway: Hull City agree to sign 25-year-old - Exclusive

Dundalk midfielder Jordan Flores is undergoing a medical at Hull City, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The 25-year-old, who has entered the final 12 months of his contract in Ireland, is set to return to England this month.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Hull have agreed terms with Flores and the deal is all but done.

The centre-midfielder scored twice in Dundalk’s Europa League campaign this season, registering a goal and an assist against Arsenal in October.

He scored four goals in 16 appearances last term, with his sensational strike against Shamrock Rovers earning him a nomination for the 2020 Puskas award.

Flores rose up the ranks at Wigan Athletic, making his debut for the club against Brentford in May 2015.

He went on to make 12 first-team appearances across all competitions for the Latics before loan spells at Blackpool, Chesterfield, Fylde and Swedish side Ostersund.

In January 2019 he joined Dundalk on a permanent deal and put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

A number of English clubs have been interested in signing the Englishman over the past 12 months with MK Dons and Burton Albion leading the chase for his signature in the summer.

However, he is now set to join a Hull City side that sit second in League One after a 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Saturday night.

Grant McCann is looking to take the Yorkshire side back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
