Southampton are understood to have agreed on a £12m fee to sign Hull City striker Shane Long during the current transfer window, The Mirror reports.

The Saints boss Ronald Koeman is keen to find a suitable partner for summer signing Graziano Pelle, with Jay Rodriguez unlikely to be available at the start of the new league campaign due to an ankle injury.

Having failed to persuade Javier Hernandez to join the South Coast club, The Mirror claims that Koeman has opted to seal a deal for Long, who has good Premier League experience behind him.

Long notched up four goals in 15 games for the Tigers since his switch from West Bromwich Albion in January.
