Hull City are poised to announce the signings of Nigerian-born duo of Chuba Akpom and Moses Odubajo on Monday subject to medicals.
The players travelled to East Yorkshire on Sunday night for the mandatory medical examinations.
Hull, the club of Super Eagles forward Omatsone Aluko, were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season.
The Tigers also once had in their books former Super Eagles midfielder and captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.
Akpom is joining The Tigers on a season-long loan while Odubajo is a £3.5m signing from Brentford.
“We’ve still got a little bit to do. I’m very confident that we’ve got Chuba and the same goes for Moses too.
“We’ve triggered the release clause (with Brentford) for Moses. They’re up in Hull ahead of medicals,” Hull manager Steve Bruce told the Mail.
“All being well, I hope we can get them over the line. I’m never going to count my chickens but they’re just the type I’m looking for.
“I’ve got to add an injection of young, hungry players to go with the experience d ones we’ve got. I believe that’s the best way of approaching the Championship and let’s hope I’m right.”
