Hull City expect to open talks with Villarreal striker Jozy Altidore today. The Hull Daily Mail says the US international cost the Spanish giants £6m last summer - a record fee received by a Major League Soccer side.

Altidore has since found his opportunities limited and keen to blood him in regular European football, Villarreal are ready to accept the Tigers' approach of a year-long loan.

It is understood the teenage star was due in East Yorkshire for initial talks today
