Nikica Jelavic looks increasingly likely to join Hull City in this January transfer window, according to Sky Sports.

The Croation striker had been in prolific form for Everton since joining The Toffees from Rangers two years ago this month.

His goals seem to have dried up, however, and he now finds himself out of the first-team behind on-loan Belgian star Romelu Lukaku.

It has been reported that Jelavic told Jutarnji list: "Steve Bruce called me and told me that he wants me in his team as a leading attacker.

"He asked me if I'm ready to move, then talked briefly about the club, his coaching philosophy and about the club's goals."

Hull City can boast an impressive defensive record particularly at home this season, and currently sit in the top half of the Premier League table.

Despite the progress that Steve Bruce's side have made so far, there are only six points between them and the bottom of the league, so more fire-power up front is much needed.

Jelvaic added: "He was very confident during that conversation and after that I agreed to move to Hull City."

The two clubs appear to have a fee agreed, although it is not clear exactly how much the transfer of Jelavic will cost The Tigers.

Jelavic has 16 goals in 59 appearances for Everton, and will look to improve on those statistics if he is able to complete a move to Hull in the next couple of weeks.
