PSV defender Jordy de Wijs is set to undergo at medical at Hull City, according to Hull Live.
The Tigers head off to Portugal at the weekend for pre-season training and friendlies against Portuguese sides Maritimo and Braga. They are hoping to conclude a deal for the Dutch defender before they go.
Hull have only signed Eric Lichaj from Nottingham Forest so far in this transfer window and are in need of some news signings into their squad. de Wijs is a deal that is likely to go through now and could be announced today, should the medical go ok.
de Wijs started his career at PSV but has mainly been used in their reserve team Jong PSV, who play their football in the Dutch second division. He has made 65 appearances for them and has scored 6 goals from centre-back.
He gained first-team experience last season on loan at Eredivisie side Excelsior and became a key player for them. However, his long-term future at his parent club PSV is in doubt and he is now seeking a fresh challenge in his career. Italian Serie B side Perugia have shown an interest but it appears that his next destination is with Championship side Hull City.
This news is positive for Hull City fans who have been patiently waiting for news on incoming transfers. Signing Jordy de Wijs would be a start but the Tigers are in need of a number of new signings to replace those that have left them earlier in the transfer window.
