Jackson Irvine of Burton Albion.
Hull City are closing in on a deal to sign Jackson Irvine from Burton Albion after coach Andy Garner confirmed the midfielder had been at KCOM Stadium for talks ahead of a move.
"That's it really. He's gone up there and spoken to another club. I don't know if that deal has been finalised or not, I'm not too sure, but that's the reason."
Asked if that club was Hull, Garner replied: "Yes."
Hull manager Leonid Slutsky.
Irvine has been lined up by Tigers manager Leonid Slutsky as a direct replacement for Sam Clucas following his £16.5m switch to Swansea City, but the 24-year-old wasn't the Russian's first choice.
No, that man was Wednesday star Barry Bannan, with Sky Sports reporting the Owls rejected a bid from Hull for the Scotland international.
According to the Yorkshire Post, Bannan's manager Carlos Carvalhal is determined not to lose the 27-year-old and it seems the Portuguese will get his way - something that has not always been the case in the transfer market this summer.

The Sheffield club have only signed Jordan Rhodes - in a deal already agreed with Middlesbrough back in February - free agent George Boyd and Vitoria Setubal loanee Frederico Venancio this window, with funds extremely limited.
Yet while incoming transfers may not be plentiful, holding onto fan favourite Bannan could be the most important piece of business Carvalhal does before Thursday's deadline.
