Steve Bruce believes that McCormack would be an upgrade on his current striking options at the KC Stadium, and is willing to sanction a move for the 29-year-old.

Fulham will sell McCormack for £15 million (Get West London) this summer, due to a clause in his contract.

Hull realise that their squad needs significant strengthening, if they are to avoid relegation from the Premier League next term.
