Everton misfit Oumar Niasse is on the verge of securing a loan move to Hull City.
The striker arrived on a £13.5 million deal from Lokamotiv Moscow less than 12 months ago but struggled in adapting to life at Goodison Park.
Hull are preparing to offer the Senegal international a chance to revive his career with an initial loan switch as they prepare to battle for their Premier League survival.
Niasse was tipped for a move to the Tigers last summer and could see his switch to the KCOM Stadium become a permanent one with an included buy-out option.
The 26-year-old previously spoke about his misery at Everton, claiming that he did not even have a locker at the club’s Finch Farm training ground.
