Hull City are eyeing a raid on Dundee for defender Cameron Kerr, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Right-back Kerr is highly-regarded at Dundee having come through the ranks at Dens Park.

Kerr made his first-team debut for Dundee at the age of 17 and he has made close to 100 appearances for the club.

The 22-year-old was named Dundee's player and young player of the year during the 2016/17 season and he was promoted to vice-captain last season.

Hull's head coach Nigel Adkins looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Hull City and Brentford at KCOM Stadium on December 9, 2017 in Hull, England.

Kerr's progress at Dundee has not gone unnoticed among clubs south of the border and Hull made regular checks on the defender last year.

Hull boss Nigel Adkins is looking to bolster his defensive options this summer after seeing a number of players move on at the end of last season and Kerr is thought to figure highly on his wanted list.

Hull have enjoyed success in the past in signing players from Scotland after bringing in Andy Robertson from Dundee United before selling him to Liverpool last summer and they see Kerr as a potential star in the making.

Dundee are reluctant to lose Kerr, but with the player entering the final year of his contract the club are bracing themselves for offers for the talented full-back.
