According to a statement on the Hull City website, the club have agreed terms for the transfer of Everton striker Nikica Jelavic, although no fee has been mention as of yet.
The statement says that Everton have given the Tigers permission to open talks with Jelavic over a possible move to the KC Stadium.
“Hull City have reached an agreement with Everton over the transfer of striker Nikica Jelavic and will now enter talks with the player,” said the statement.
“The 28-year-old Croatian international has scored 21 goals in 69 appearances for Everton since joining them from Rangers in January 2012.”
The Croatian international has fell out of favour at Everton at the start of the 2013/14 season and has only made ten appearances for the Toffees.
This has led to wide speculation that he will be leaving the club with a number of parties expressing their interest.
Along with Hull City, Jelavic has been linked with moves to Premier League strugglers West Ham and Crystal Palace.
It would seem, however, that Hull City manager Steve Bruce has Jelavic at the top of his wish list in the January transfer market following his side’s inability to find the back of the net on regular occurrence in the league.
