Transfer Talk: Why Ronaldo wants out?
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague explains why Cristiano Ronaldo wants out of Real Madrid and is set for a move to Juventus.
The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Bolton, featuring 26 times as Phil Parkinson's side secured their Championship status on the final day of the campaign.
Burke returned briefly to West Ham midway through last season and scored his only goal for the club in the 1-0 FA Cup third-round replay win over League One side Shrewsbury.
He will become Hull manager Nigel Adkins' fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Eric Lichaj, Callum Smith and Manuel Milinkovic at the KCOM Stadium.
Burke, a West Ham academy graduate, has previously spent time on loan at Bradford where he was named the club's player of the year.
