Hull close in on Blackburn's Gestede

Hull City are believed to be nearing a deal for Blackburn Rovers striker Rudy Gestede.

Sky Sports suggests that the Tigers are in advanced talks with Rovers regarding a potential £4.5million deal for the 26-year old French-born Benin international.

Gestede has been at Ewood Park since joining from on loan from Cardiff City in November 2013 before signing a permanent deal with the Lancashire outfit in January last year.

Since arriving in Blackburn, the former Metz and Cannes forward has netted 25 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions including 12 in the Championship this season.
