Hull City are lining up a move for Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala, skysports.com understands.
Ayala is currently well down the pecking order at Anfield and Reds boss Roy Hodgson is thought to be ready to send him out on loan.
The 19-year-old has made five first-team appearances since his arrival from Sevilla in 2007 and Liverpool are keen for him to get some first-team action under his belt.
Ayala is expected to sign a season-long loan deal at the Championship club as he searches for regular action this season.
Hull boss Nigel Pearson has moved for Ayala after losing Paul McShane to injury and he is hoping to tie up the move before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.
