Hull City are in talks with PSV defender Jordy de Wijs and a deal is expected to go through before Sunday, according to the Dutch news oulet ED.
The Tigers head off to Portugal on Sunday for pre-season and are hoping to conclude a deal for the Dutch defender before they go.
Hull have only signed Eric Lichaj so far in this transfer window and are in need of some reinforcements into their squad. de Wijs is a deal that is likely to go through now and they are also exploring moves for free agent defender Nedum Onuoha and Conor Townsend from League One side Scunthorpe United.
de Wijs started his career at PSV but has mainly been used in their reserve team Jong PSV, who play their football in the Dutch second division. He has made 65 appearances for them and has scored 6 goals from centre-back.
He gained first-team experience last season on loan at Eredivisie side Excelsior and became a key player for them. However, his long-term future at his parent club PSV is in doubt and he is now seeking a fresh challenge in his career. Italian Serie B side Perugia have shown an interest but it appears that his next destination is with Championship side Hull City.
This news is positive for Hull fans who have been patiently waiting for news on incoming transfers. Their side head to the Algarve this weekend for pre-season training and two friendlies against Maritimo and Braga, and they could have a new player in their ranks with de Wijs looking East Yorkshire bound.
