Hull City are in advanced talks to sign Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj, according to ESPN.

The Tigers are hopeful of completing a deal for the 29-year-old right-back after making him a transfer target earlier this summer.

Lichaj has been linked with a move away from Nottingham Forest for more regular first-team action and Hull City could provide him with that. They are looking to replace Ola Aina and Fikayo Tomori, who are right-backs, after they returned to Chelsea at the end of their loans last season.

Lichaj is an experienced Championship full-back and would be a decent signing for the Tigers. He started his career in America with Chicago Fire Premier but moved over to England in 2007 to join Aston Villa in the Premier League.

He went onto play 42 games for Villa as well as having loan spells at Lincoln City, Leyton Orient and Leeds United. Lichaj was released in 2013 and joined Nottingham Forest on a free transfer.

The American defender has since played 188 games for Forest in all competitions. However, he only played 21 games in the league last season for them and now wants more game time.

Eric Lichaj would be a good signing for Hull City if they can get it over the line. They are in need of some reinforcements to their squad this summer and he would slot in nicely into their back-line.
