Hull City are closing in on a deal for highly rated Manchester United winger Robbie Brady according to

The Tigers are keen to bolster their squad ahead of the new Npower Championship season, and manager Nigel Pearson has identified Brady as a player who would provide added competition for places at the KC Stadium.

The Red Devils starlet is tipped for a bright future, but Sir Alex Ferguson is keen for the Republic of Ireland U21 international to gain some much needed first team experience away from Old Trafford.

Boasting the likes of Luis Nani, Antonio Valencia, Park Ji Sung, and recent acquisition Ashley Young, it is understandable why Brady's first team opportunities at Manchester United have so far been limited.


But with an emphasis very much placed on the development of up and coming stars at Carrington, Ferguson will look to utilise the well-established relationship with Hull - who have acted almost as a parent club, having agreed to the loan signings of a number of Manchester United youngsters over the past twelve months.

The two clubs have enjoyed a good working relationship following the successful loan spells of Cory Evans, James Chester, Cameron Stewart and Joe Dugdeon - Brady could be the latest name to make the switch from Old Trafford to the KC Stadium ahead of 2011-12.
