Middlesbrough are ready to take Danny Graham off Hull City hands.

The Geordie is on-loan at the KC from Sunderland, but is on the outer after Hull's deals for Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long.

Nottingham Forest are vying with Middlesbrough for his signature, but Riverside bosses are confident they have convinced him to stay on the east coast and expect to announce the striker will be with them for the rest of the campaign, says the Daily Mail.
