Hull closing in on Slovenia captain

The former West Brom midfielder’s agent has confirmed that the Tigers are looking to sign his client.

The 29-year-old’s representative, Zoran Krneta, told the Hull Daily Mail: “We have been talking with Hull City and many other clubs in England.

“A lot of teams in the Championship have expressed an interest this summer and Hull City are one of those teams.

“We are close to a decision and we are looking to finalise by the weekend. Hopefully we will know more by Friday.”
