Hull City are in talks to sign former Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old is currently a free agent having left Shanghai Shenhua following a short spell in China.
Sissoko has been training with Nancy in order to maintain his fitness and there is talk that the French club are lining up a contract offer.
Montpellier, too, have offered him a two-year deal but now Premier League new boys Hull want to land him.
And Sissoko, the former Juventus, PSG and Valencia man, may choose to head back to England, where he played for Liverpool between 2005 and 2008.
