Long-term injury trio Ian Ashbee, Jimmy Bullard and Anthony Gardner will travel with Hull on next month's pre-season training camp to Italy. Tigers boss Phil Brown told the club's official website: "Jimmy, Anthony and Ian will all be at different levels of fitness.
"The plans have fitted in well in terms of the amount of rest they will need because they have already been working hard.
"But by the time we get to Bormio in Italy, hopefully all three will be on the training ground in some shape.
"Whether that is in full-tilt training, just short of full-tilt training or just rehabilitation we'll see, but they'll certainly all be going to Bormio."
Brown hailed the club's medical staff in helping the trio's rehabilitation.
"It's testimony to the backroom staff that we have got at this club that we have gone on a one-to-one basis with them and are almost living in the pockets of the players to get the three of them somewhere near come July 8th," he said.
