The 20-year-old will now decide where he wants to play his football between the Tykes and the Tigers.

Barnsley brought in defender Aapo Halme from Leeds earlier this week and have been long-term admirers of Wilks.

However, the new Hull boss Grant McCann had him on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season and is hoping to use his good relationship with him to reunite at the KCOM Stadium this summer.

Wilks scored 16 goals in 53 appearances for Donny in the last campaign and helped them get into the League One Play-Offs. He has also enjoyed loan spells at Accrington Stanley and Grimsby Town in the past.

The Tigers are hopeful they can see off interest from Barnsley and bring Wilks to East Yorkshire after holding talks this week. They jet off to Marbella at the weekend for pre-season training and friendlies against Leyton Orient and Lincoln Red Imps.

McCann’s men are eager to get some deals over the line with Wilks firmly on their radar. Former Peterborough United defender Ryan Tafazolli is another signing they want to bring in. The Tigers have also been linked with Liverpool duo Herbie Kane and Ben Woodburn.

Where will Leeds’ Wilks choose, Hull or Barnsley?
