Manchester United youngster Will Keane is undergoing a medical at Hull City ahead of a proposed permanent transfer.
Hull City’s interim manager Mike Phelan worked alongside Keane during his time as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson and is desperate to bring some new faces to Hull before Wednesday’s transfer deadline.
The Tigers, who have a delicately thin first team squad, have yet to recruit any new players despite the long list of serious injuries and the departure of key players.
With time running out, it would seem that Hull are closing in on 23-year-old academy graduate Keane having seen his chances slip away at Manchester United since the appointment of Jose Mourinho.
Keane has previously enjoyed loan spells in with a series of Championship clubs but only found the net one in 20 appearances for Preston North End last year.
