Hull City are keeping tabs on Coventry goalkeeper Lee Burge as they look to bolster their goalkeeping options ahead of next season, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Hull have made goalkeeping reinforcements one of their top priorities this summer and Burge is among their top targets.

 

Hull's current No.1 keeper David Marshall is out of contract this summer and has yet to agree a new deal at the KCOM Stadium.

Burge is out of contract at Coventry at the end of the season and could leave the League One club on a free transfer this summer.

Burge's potential availability as a free agent this summer has made him an attractive proposition for a number of clubs, including Hull.

Hull scouts are understood to have watched the 26-year-old in action against Oxford United at the weekend as they weigh up a move for Burge.

Burge has come through the ranks at Coventry and has made over 150 first-team appearances for the Sky Blues since establishing himself as No.1 keeper.

Hull boss Nigel Adkins is keen to bring experienced goalkeepers this summer and on a restricted budget Burge fits the bill on a free transfer.
