Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough are in talks to sign Danny Graham, currently on a season-long loan at Hull City, Sky Sports understands.
Graham signed for Hull in the summer from Sunderland, but with Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic having arrived at the KC Stadium, they are seemingly happy to let him leave.
With Sunderland and Hull both willing to let the deal go through, Forest and Boro are now competing to land the 28-year-old who has scored just once this season in the Premier League.
Middlesbrough attempted to sign their former striker before he joined Sunderland in 2012 and now they are again hopeful of bringing him back to The Riverside.
Forest boss Billy Davies is looking to bolster his attacking options ahead of the promotion run-in and is hoping that Graham may opt for the City Ground.
