Wolves striker Nouha Dicko is undergoing a medical at Hull City after being given the green light to make a cross-Championship transfer, Football Insider sources understand.
Hull have agreed the terms of the deal for the forward with the Molineux club to beat second-tier rivals Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers to his signature.
A well-placed source has told Football Insider that the France-born striker is undergoing a medical at the KCOM Stadium this morning (Tuesday) and has already agreed personal terms to join Leonid Slutsky’s side.
Hull are in the market for striking reinforcements after losing star striker Abel Hernandez to a serious Achilles injury earlier this month and Dicko has being lined up to replace him.
Dicko has been used as a substitute by new Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo in their first five Championship games, scoring the winner in the 3-2 win at Hull City earlier this month.
Wolves are willing to sell Dicko for with the club actively in the market to bring a new striker to Molineux.
News of Dicko’s imminent move to Hull will come as a blow to Leeds and QPR as both clubs search for striking reinforcements before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
In other Leeds United transfer news, the Yorkshire giants have one striker deal in the big just days before the window shuts and are also closing in on another big-name forward signing.
