Hull City have a deal in place for Burnley striker Charlie Austin.

The Daily Mail says Hull have agreed a £4.5m deal for Austin. The 24-year-old has emerged as a leading target for Steve Bruce as the Hull boss continues to build a squad for a season in the Premier League.

Austin only has 12 months remaining on his contract at Burnley and it is understood that the two clubs are on the brink of agreeing a fee.

The former Swindon forward is then set to hold talks with the Tigers after previously being linked with the likes of Celtic and Southampton.
