Manchester United starlet Joe Dudgeon has agreed a deal with Hull City according to skysports.com.
The 20-year-old defender will link up with Nigel Pearson's squad upon completion of his medical due to be finalised at the KC Stadium on Monday.
Dudgeon follows former Red Devils youngsters Cameron Stewart, James Chester and Corry Evans to Hull, who are putting together a squad full of exciting young talent ahead of next year's Championship season.
Sir Alex Ferguson gave the green light on a £300,000 deal which sees Dudgeon end a five-year spell at Old Trafford after joining the Manchester United academy in April 2006.
The promising Northern Ireland U21 international has spent part of the season on loan, joining League One outfit Carlisle United in January, and helping them to the Johnstone's Paint Football League Trophy earlier this year.
The Wembley victory marked the proudest moment in Dudgeon's career so far, but he is now excited to begin a new chapter with the Tigers.
Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Pearson enthused, "Joe's another very promising player, I think he will be a really good addition to the squad.
"He's an exciting player but he can certainly put his foot in as well. He plays left-back for the most part but he can play a little bit further up as well."
Dudgeon leaves Manchester United with best wishes in the hope that he goes on to a glittering career that was deemed a bridge to far at Old Trafford with the Red Devils.
