Hull City to complete Nikica Jelavic transfer

Everton forward Nikica Jelavic is heading to Hull City tonight to discuss personal terms with the Tigers and club manager Steve Bruce after the two clubs agreed on a transfer deal for the player.

Jelavic has struggled to force his way into Everton's first team plans under Roberto Martinez, partially down to the impressive form of on loan forward Romelu Lukaku. Hull City have now had a bid accepted for the Croatian striker and are confident a deal will be wrapped up tomorrow morning.

The 28-year-old had instructed his agent that he would like to make a transfer elsewhere in search of regular first team football and the former Rangers man will now hope a regular place in the team will improve his chances of making Croatia's World Cup squad.
