Hull are reported to be weighing up a move for Brighton midfielder Beram Kayal, who could be available for just £1.5million.
Tigers boss Steve Bruce was able to get a close-up view of Kayal last season when the Israel star figured in both games against City in the Championship.
The midfielder clearly caught the eye of Bruce and reports are rife that a bid could be in the pipeline for the 28-year-old, who has just one year remaining on his deal at the Amex.
Such is the player’s contract situation on the south coast, the Seagulls may have to consider cashing in this summer and a fee of £1.5million has been mentioned.
That would represent a bargain and it is no wonder Bruce is being heavily linked with a swoop.
