The Telegraph reports that Tottenham Hotspur are open to loaning Aaron Lennon to Hull City, but only if Steve Bruce's side put in an option to buy him for a fixed price at the end of the season.
The report states that Spurs have previously rejected all loan approaches for Lennon, as they are looking to sell him on a permanent transfer, but they are happy to meet at a compromise.
It is believed that Tottenham are looking to raise £7 million from Lennon's sale, but no club has been prepared to spend that sort of money on the winger yet.
Hull have made contact with the Lilywhites, but they are only prepared to offer a temporary switch to the 27-year-old at this moment in time.
The deal looked set to collapse as a result of that, but the latest report seems to suggest that Spurs would be willing to conclude the deal now - providing the loan switch comes with an option for the Tigers to buy him in the summer for a fee agreed in advance, so they can't attempt to grab a bargain come June.
Lennon has fallen out of favour under Mauricio Pochettino and has not even made an appearance for Spurs since December, meaning an exit in some form seems likely.
It would be a disappointing way for the England international's White Hart Lane career to come to an end, but if he did move to Hull he would arrive with a point to prove to his current employers.
