Arsenal striker Jay Simpson is keen on a permanent move to Hull if the two clubs can agree a fee, according to the player's agent.

Leon Callender, owner of Straight Ace Sports Management, confirmed the 21-year-old travelled to Hull for talks with Tigers manager Nigel Pearson and that the deal would amount to £1million including add-ons.

"Should the two clubs come to an agreement on a deal, I can't see there being any problem in the deal going through. Jay is very interested in a move to Hull," Callender told the Hull Daily Mail.

"He sees Hull as a good Championship club and feels it would be a good move for him. He travelled up to Hull last week for a look around and has spoken to the gaffer. Now it is just down to the clubs to agree a deal."

It has also been reported that Hull are in talks with Cardiff over a straight swap deal involving Tigers' striker Daniel Cousin and the Welsh side's unsettled forward Ross McCormack.

But the switch is dependent on Cousin agreeing on a substantial wage cut, with Cardiff understood to have offered the Gabon international £9,000-a-week, which is half his current salary at the KC Stadium.
