According to the Daily Mail, Hull City are to make a £1.5 million bid for Reading’s Oliver Norwood.
The report claims that Hull are keen on starting their transfer activity early as they look to build for their return to the Premier League and Reading’s Norwood is among their top priorities.
The Tigers won promotion back to the Premier League after defeating Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in the Championship playoff final at Wembley last weekend.
Steve Bruce’s men already have the basis of a Premier League squad after keeping the squad which got relegated in the 2014/15 season intact, yet key additions will be added this summer.
Norwood has arguably his best campaign of his career this past season as he performed to an excellent standard in Reading’s midfield despite the club’s struggles at the wrong end of the table.
The Northern Ireland international started all but three of Reading’s matches this past season and his impressive displays have also attracted interest from Burnley and Celtic, as mentioned in the report.
The 25-year-old would be a good signing for Steve Bruce’s side and a switch to Hull could make sense for the midfielder after working previously under the club’s assistant manager Mike Phelan.
