Blackpool winger Tom Ince was on Humberside on Tuesday poised to finalise his transfer to Hull City.
Ince is set to become the Tigers’ third signing of the summer.
Manager Steve Bruce moved in for the talented England under-21 international after Ince reportedly turned down a move to Inter Milan.
Ince met Tigers’ officials for the first time on Tuesday with a view to completing his switch to the Barclays Premier League side.
The 22-year-old winger met Inter chiefs in Italy last month to discuss a possible move but decided his future was in England.
Despite Ince being out of contract at Bloomfield Road, he is under 23 so Blackpool will be due compensation when he makes his next move.
Ince, who joined Blackpool from Liverpool, had a spell on loan with Crystal Palace last season.
The move came about after Ince’s father Paul was sacked as Blackpool manager.
Hull boss Steve Bruce completed the permanent signing of Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore last month and has also landed Robert Snodgrass from Norwich for a reported £7million fee.
