Hull City hope to close a deal for Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi this week.

This is Hull says the 21-year-old Hungarian tops manager Nigel Pearson's wish-list for a new number one and has already held talks with the Tigers over a season-long loan move to the KC Stadium.

With Liverpool keen to see Gulacsi gain regular first-team experience in the Championship after previous loan spells with Hereford and Tranmere, the deal looks to be a formality.

And provided the finer details of the move can be agreed this week, the highly-rated youngster should join up with the Tigers for their high-altitude training camp in Slovenia next week.
