Hull edge ahead of Celtic for Reading full-back Gunter

Hull City have made a move for Reading's Chris Gunter, according to reports.

The Sun is of the belief that the Tigers are scrambling to find a replacement for Moses Odubajo who was injured in a pre-season friendly last week and is expected to be sidelined for up to six months with a ruptured medial ligament.

Scottish giants Celtic were believed to be in pole position to sign 26-year-old Gunter, who impressed for Wales at Euro2016, but fish reports indicate that a Premier League return is on the cards for the former Tottenham right-back.

Gunter is contracted with the Royals until the summer of 2018 and has a release clause of £1.1million.
