Published Add your comment

West Brom have accepted an undisclosed bid from rivals Hull City for striker Shane Long.

The Republic of Ireland striker was set to join the Tigers back in the summer but the move broke down on deadline day and now the Yorkshire based club have had another offer accepted by the Baggies.

With just six months remaining on his current contract Long has been linked with a host of clubs including Stoke and Hull before today's bid was made.

Hull released a statement on their website, which read: "The club has this morning agreed a fee with West Bromwich Albion for striker Shane Long, and will now enter talks with the striker over personal terms."

He will be the second striker to join Hull in recent days after Nikica Jelavic and takes Hull's total spent on strikers to above the £10m mark.
