Hull City hope to sign Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies today.

The Sun says Davies is set to seal his £2.3million switch from Birmingham to Hull today.

The Blues centre-back is heading for Humberside to agree personal terms and pen a three-year deal with boss Steve Bruce's Premier League new-boys.

Former Aston Villa defender Davies,28, is one of four top earners the cash-strapped St Andrew's outfit need to get off their wage bill.
