Hull City are interested in signing David Marshall from Cardiff City in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun (print edition, page 57, July 15, 2016).

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Hull are lining up a £6 million bid for the 31-year-old goalkeeper.

The Tigers are looking at Marshall in the wake of the long-term injury suffered by Allan McGregor, according to the report.

Goalkeeper McGregor, who is 34 years of age, has been ruled out of action for six months, claims The Sun.

Marshall has been on the books of Cardiff since 2009 and has a contract with the Bluebirds until June 2018, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

The Scotland international is a very experienced and able goalkeeper, and he would be a good signing for Hull.

The 31-year-old former Celtic and Norwich City goalkeeper knows the Premier League and English football inside out.

Meanwhile, Cardiff will be looking to finish in the top six of the Championship next season.
