Sky Sports News understands Hull City have agreed a £6million fee for Manchester United youngster Fraizer Campbell.
However, the Tigers are expected to face competition from fellow Premier League sides Sunderland, Stoke City and Fulham.
The 21-year-old spent seven months on loan at the KC Stadium in October 2007, where his 15 goals helped Phil Brown's men achieve promotion to the top flight.
Despite his successful loan stint, the England Under 21 international rejected the chance to join the Tigers on a permanent deal last summer, opting instead to go on loan to Tottenham as part of the deal which saw Dimitar Berbatov move to Old Trafford.
But chances were few and far between at Spurs, with manager Harry Redknapp handing the striker just one Premier League start.
The Red Devils ace still proved he could cut it at the highest level when he fired a brace to knock Liverpool out of the Carling Cup at White Hart Lane back in November.
Campbell's only other strike for Spurs came in the following game where he scored a consolation against Fulham.
"It'll be tight as I know Stevie Bruce, Tony Pulis and Roy Hodgson are admirers," Phil Brown told the Sunday Mirror.
