Hull City are reportedly preparing a move for Kilmarnock star Greg Taylor according to Daily Record.

The Scotland new boy is attracting interest from the Tigers as well as Rangers and Celtic as they face a battle for the signature of Taylor.

He has recently won his first cap for Scotland and his impressive performances are alerting Hull City to make a bid having been long time admirers of the left back.

The 21-year-old has been regularly scouted by the Tigers’ head of recruitment Lee Darnbrough this season as the club are big fans of his.

The main priority for Hull at present is to sort out their managerial vacancy with Nigel Adkins having recently left the club due to differences with the hierarchy regarding the future and direction that the Championship club are going in.

The only issue this transfer could find is the valuation of the player by Kilmarnock with Taylor having now represented his country at international level this is sure to have increased his value by the Scottish side.

Hull are believed to feel that the Scotsman is worth in the region of £400,000 but with his status growing and with a new manager on the horizon at Kilmarnock after Steve Clarke’s departure it is yet to be seen if they are willing to part with one of their best players.

Celtic and Rangers are also said to be monitoring Taylor but they would need to sell players before they could look at buying the youngster.

Hull are trying to get their balance their books after over-spending in the Premier League but are prepared to pay fees for young talent who they feel they can develop and eventually sell for a higher fee as they have done previously with the likes of Andy Robertson.
