Sky Sports understands Hull City have agreed a deal to sign German striker Nick Proschwitz.
The Tigers have been in talks with the SC Paderborn striker after flying him over to the club's training camp in Portugal.
Proschwitz is believed to have passed a medical and agreed personal terms with Hull and is expected to sign a two-year deal at the KC Stadium.
A number of clubs are thought to have been chasing the 25-year-old after he impressed last season with SC Paderborn, scoring 17 goals in 33 games.
However, Hull have managed to lure him to England and his arrival will be a major boost for new Tigers boss Steve Bruce as he looks to bolster his attacking options for next season.
