Hull City have begun planning for next season in the Premier league despite not securing their safety just yet. The Tigers are making early moves for their transfer targets before other suitors get active in the market.
Reports from Turkey are claiming that the club’s officials have flown to Turkey to try and complete a deal for Fenerbahce defender Simon Kjaer.
The Dane has been courted by top Premier League teams, with Liverpool said to be planning a summer bid for the player. However, it seems that Hull City are more serious than them.
Hull officials, David Beeby and Bronwen Walker are reportedly flying to Turkey this weekend to try and convince the defender to join them ahead of next season, as they believe that Marcos Silva will help them avoid relegation to the Championship this season.
Silva has done wonders since he was appointed the manager of Hull City. The Portuguese manager has taken Hull from the bottom of the table to safety from relegation, without losing a home game.
However, it is believed that Kjaer would prefer to join a bigger English team, or wait until the Tiger’s Premier League safety is confirmed.
