Hull City have agreed a fee with Fulham for midfielder Jimmy Bullard, according to the Daily Mail.
The Tigers are believed to have had a bid of around Ã‚Â£5 million accepted for the midfielder, who has attracted the interest of numerous Premiership clubs after failing to agree a new contract with Fulham.
Bolton were said to be the front runners for Bullard, however the Trotters pulled out after they believed Fulham valued the player too highly.
Fulham boss Roy Hodgson told press: “We seem to spend the best part of media conferences talking about Jimmy. Bolton were told of our valuation and offered considerably less.”
“That enquiry was made some days ago. Megson (Bolton manager) made it public and if they’re not pursuing the matter it’s good because we’ll be able to keep him.”
Bullard was a surprise call up to Fabio Capello’s England squad last year and that honour is said to have raised Bullard’s ambitions in hopes of a move to a bigger club and it remains to be seen whether or not Hull can persuade the Fulham star to move to the KC Stadium.
