Sources: Man City midfielder Smith agrees to join Hull City
Manchester City midfielder Matt Smith has agreed to join Hull City, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Championship new boys have swooped for Smith, 21, after being given the green light by the champions.
A City source has told Football Insider that Smith is heading to Hull on a season-long loan.

Since joining City in 2013, the midfielder has had no more than four spells away from The Etihad.
He spent time at FC Twente, QPR and Charlton Athletic before having a more fruitful move last season.

Smith made 43 appearances for Doncaster Rovers last season and chipped in with one goal.
He is also a full international, making 14 appearances for Wales since his debut in 2018.
Smith was included in Wales’ Euro 2020 squad but he was didn’t manage to make an appearance.
During his time at QPR and Charlton, Smith barely played as accumulated just 10 Championship appearances over both spells.
Hull return to the second tier after winning League One last season.
Their first priority will be survival and Smith’s limited experience could be useful to Grant McCann.
The Tigers have been busy in the transfer market so far with Ryan Longman, Di’Shon Bernard and Nathan Baxter arriving on loan from Brighton, Manchester United and Chelsea respectively.
One Manchester City loan move that has hit a snag is that of Liam Delap.
Earlier today, Football Insider revealed Delap’s proposed move has been delayed due to injury with Stoke and Bournemouth interested in the youngster.
