Everton striker Nikica Jelavic is a step closer to leaving Goodison Park after a bid from Hull City has been accepted.
The Croatian striker has failed to match his impressive goal scoring tally of his debut season in England, and so far this year has only managed to score twice in 13 appearances, and they came against Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup.
Steve Bruce is desperate to add a natural striker to his side and after being priced-out of a move for Steven Fletcher from Sunderland, and Shane Long refusing to leave West Bromwich Albion, the former-Manchester United defender turned his attentions to the Everton-man.
The 28-year-old is set to hold personal talks with Hull in the next few days.
The official Hull City Twitter accounted tweeted the following earlier:
‘We have agreed a deal with Everton for Nikica Jelavic. We will enter talks with the striker over the coming days.’
