Skysports.com understands Hull City are poised to sign Nottingham Forest midfielder Paul McKenna.

Tigers boss Nigel Pearson has lined up a deal for the former Preston man to add experience to his squad.

Forest are willing to let McKenna move on with the 33-year-old entering the final year of his contract at the City Ground.

Hull are believed to be ready to offer McKenna a two-year deal at the KC Stadium as they look to make him their next summer signing.

Talks are at an advanced stage and Hull are hoping to finalise the move early next week.
