Hull City are close to a deal for Burnley striker Charlie Austin.

The Hull Daily Mail says Steve Bruce is close to landing top target Charlie Austin for £4million following advanced talks with Burnley.

The 24-year-old emerged as Hull's top target after the Lancashire club reduced the fee they wanted for the prolific striker.

The two clubs are now understood to be just £500,000 apart in their valuations of the player.
