Hull City closing in on experienced Premier League striker as deal nears

Championship side Hull City are closing in on the capture of experienced striker Kieffer Moore after striking a deal for the Bournemouth frontman.

City have been chasing Moore for a number of weeks and have finally struck a deal for the 31-year-old, who is set to sign a three-year contract at the MKM Stadium, Hull Live understands.

The Welsh international frontman finished last season on loan with Ipswich Town where he bagged seven goals and one assist to help the Tractor Boys win automatic promotion to the Premier League.

City's imminent capture of Moore, along with an experienced right-back is expected to kick-start a flurry of transfer activity for the Tigers in the hope of giving Tim Walter a squad capable of challenging for the top six this season once the season kicks off in four weeks' time.

Moore, Hull Live understands, has agreed terms with City and it's hoped if the final details can be ironed out with Bournemouth, will link up with Walter's squad in Turkey and will bolster the German's options.

The 6"5ft former Cardiff City frontman will provide welcome attacking potency to a frontline that has been decimated since the end of the season with Liam Delap, Fabio Carvalho, Noah Ohio and Billy Sharp all moving on after the deals came to an end.

Colombian hitman Oscar Estupinan is coming back but has been given time off by Walter, Hull Live can reveal, after playing for much of the past year having gone from City to Metz and then to Bahia in Brazil, and will rejoin the players upon their return to England later this month.
