Hull favourites to land West Ham defender Reece Burke

Hull City are favourites to land West Ham defender Reece Burke.

The Sun says Burke is set to join Hull after failing to agree personal terms with Derby.

Rams boss Frank Lampard tried to hijack Burke's £1.5million Tigers move last night.

Burke, 21, was tempted by Lampard's Hammers connections but talks have broken down.

It leaves Hull with a clear path to land the highly-rated centre-back.

Burke left West Ham's pre-season training camp in Switzerland to fly home for a medical.

He is reluctantly quitting West Ham after being told his appearances would be limited under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.
