The Tigers are happy to let the attacker leave as they look to cut their wage bill at the KC Stadium following their relegation from the Premier League.

Geovanni is believed to be in talks with Greek duo Panathinaikos and AEK Athens about a move and Hull's football operations manager Adam Pearson expects the player to seal his departure in the next few days.

"I would imagine Geovanni would prefer now not to play in the Championship," Pearson told the Daily Mirror.

"I would expect something to go through in the next seven days."

Pay cut

Meanwhile, Kevin Kilbane is one of several Tigers players to agree to a pay cut to help ease the club's financial problems

The Republic of Ireland international has agreed for his wages to be cut in half in a bid to help the club find financial security

"All we're prepared to say is that a lot of players have helped us over the summer months," added Pearson.

"I take my hat off to them for that. They've looked at the best interests of the club and their future careers and getting back into the Premier League and they've helped the club.

"People like Kevin Kilbane. He has agreed to split his one-year deal into two years and half his money.

"Things like that largely go unnoticed but it's people like Kevin Kilbane that mean this club will still be in pretty good shape next season.

"There's players at the heart of this club that care about it. You can see them a mile off."
