Birmingham City centre-back Curtis Davies looks set to join newly promoted Hull City after a medical was organized for the coming days, reports Sky Sports. 

Former Birmingham manager Steve Bruce is looking to make Davies his second defensive signing of the summer, after former Wigan defender Maynor Figueroa made the move to the KC stadium. 

Bruce will be looking to his defenders to ensure his side remain in the Premier League following their promotion for the Championship.  

And it looks like Hull are making the most of Birmingham's financial situation, signing Davies for a fee believed to be around £2.25m. Birmingham had signed the 28-year-old for £4m in 2011, and look to have made a loss on the defender, who has picked up both Premier League and Europa League experience with the club. 

And Birmingham City manager Lee Clark expects the transfer to be concluded in the coming days.  

"We've agreed terms with Hull City. Obviously Curtis and his advisor will be trying to do the same on a personal level. Then he will be going through a medical and that will probable be a formality because he made numerous games for us last season and has got a good appearance record over the past year," Clark told Sky Sports News.

Davies has made over 100 appearances for Birmingham since his transfer from local rivals Aston Villa, and was voted Player of the Season last year.
